Remarks

Characteristics of dialog box

  • 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.
  • The message is aligned to left.
  • The button caption depends 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.
  • The icon displayed (white cross) cannot be modified.
WINDEV To customize this dialog box (as well as all system dialog boxes of your application), check "Customize the system windows (Info, YesNo, Confirm, Dialog)" in the "Style" tab of the project description. See Customizing dialog boxes for more details.

Line break in the dialog box

The CR string (Carriage Return) can be used to force a break to the next line. For example:
Error("An error was detected while entering the address." + CR + ...
"Please modify the customer details.")

is equivalent to:
Error("An error was detected while entering the address. ", ...
"Please modify the customer details.")
You also have the ability to use the syntax of multiline strings. For example:
Error(
[
An error was detected while entering the address.
 
Please modify the customer details.
])

Displaying the last error message

Error used with no parameter (syntax 2) displays the error message corresponding to the last WLanguage function that triggered an error.
In this case, the following code:
Error()
is equivalent to:
Error(ErrorInfo())
Caution: Error must be used immediately after the call to the function that failed. Indeed, the call to a WLanguage function can reinitialize and modify the error report returned by Error.

Versions 25 and later
Android

Application in the background: Android 10 specific case

From Android 10, it is no longer possible to open a window when the application is in the background.
Error 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). When the notification is clicked on, the application will be brought back to the foreground if ..ActivateApplication is set to True. It is also possible to open a window from the procedure passed to ..ActionClick.
