Remarks

Characteristics of dialog box

  • The message is aligned to left.
  • The captions of buttons depend on runtime language of Windows (or on the runtime language of browser for a WEBDEV site).
  • The maximum number of characters cannot exceed 4096. If a larger string is passed in parameter, it will be truncated.
  • The icon displayed (exclamation mark in a WINDEV application, question mark in a WEBDEV application) cannot be modified.
  • The title of the dialog box corresponds to the title of the current window (or page).
    AndroidiPhone/iPad To comply with the system specifications, the title of dialog box is empty by default. To define this title, use NextTitle.
  • To modify or define the title of dialog box, use NextTitle.

Line break in the dialog box

The CR string (Carriage Return) can be used to force a break to the next line. For example:
Confirm("The XXX form was modified." + CR + ...
"Do you want to save it before exiting?")
is equivalent to:
Confirm("The XXX form was modified.", ...
"Do you want to save it before exiting?")
You also have the ability to use the syntax of multiline strings. For example:
Confirm(
[
The XXX form has been modified.
 
DO you want TO save changes before closing?
])

Application in the background: Specific case from Android 10

From Android 10, it is no longer possible to open a window when the application is in the background.
Confirm can open a window. If this function is used while the application is in the background, a fatal error will occur.
Tips:
  • It is possible to determine if the application is in the background using InBackgroundMode.
  • If an application needs to interact with the user while it is in the background, the solution is to display a notification (via the Notification type). The application will be brought back to the foreground when the notification is clicked, if the ActivateApplication property is set to True. You can also open a window from the procedure passed to the ActionClick property.
