Remarks

Using the syntax with wizard

To use this syntax, you must use the wizard proposed when writing the function name in the code editor ("<Wizard>" option proposed by the assisted input). This wizard allows you to specify the different parameters of the dialog box that will be used. This function cannot be used if the dialog window is not created by the wizard.
To start the wizard:
  1. In the code editor, type "Dialog(".
  2. Click "Wizard". The wizard starts. Go to the next step.
  3. Choose an existing question or create a new question (<Click here to create a new question>). Go to the next step.
  4. If you have chosen to create a question, a screen is displayed. This screen allows you to enter the different parameters of the dialog box used to ask the question. You can specify:
    • The text of the question,
    • The image of dialog box,
    • The different buttons allowing the user to answer.
  5. Validate the screen for defining the question. The corresponding code is automatically inserted into the code editor. Press the ENTER key again. The entire code is added in the code editor. The characteristics of dialog box can be modified via the icon found beside the question text.

Characteristics of dialog box

  • The title of the dialog box corresponds to the title of the current window (or page).

To modify the order of buttons, display the wizard for editing a question and uncheck "Use the order defined by the system for the validation/cancelation buttons".
  • iPhone/iPad The displayed dialog box is a native iPhone/iPad dialog box.

Miscellaneous

  • Windows Mobile DelayBeforeClosing is used to limit the time required to display the message. The dialog box is automatically closed. For the question or confirmation dialog boxes, the expected answer corresponds to the default button.
  • Android To allow the user to type a value in a dialog box, use Input.
  • iPhone/iPad This function must not be used:
    • in the event "Resizing" of the window. Otherwise, the application will be locked.
