Characteristics of dialog box

  • The title of the dialog box corresponds to the title of the current window (or page).
  • To modify or define the title of dialog box, use NextTitle.
  • The message is aligned to left.
  • The captions of buttons depend on the runtime language of Windows.
  • The maximum number of characters cannot exceed 4096. If a larger string is passed in parameter, it will be truncated.
    Java The entire string is displayed, regardless of its size.
  • The icon displayed (information tooltip) cannot be modified.

Line break in the dialog box

The CR string (Carriage Return) can be used to force a break to the next line. For example:
Info("The XXX form was modified." + CR + "This form will be saved.")
is equivalent to:
Info("The XXX form was modified.", "This form will be saved.")
You also have the ability to use the syntax of multiline strings. For example:
The XXX form has been modified.
This form will be saved.

Special cases

  • Timers (TimerSys) are not stopped when this function is called.
  • PHP The call to Info is effective in the current page only. If PageDisplay is used after Info, the dialog box will not be displayed in the new page.
  • Java DelayBeforeClosing limits how long the message is displayed. The dialog box is automatically closed. For question or confirmation dialog boxes, the default button corresponds to the expected answer.
  • The text of the buttons is displayed in the system language.
