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.

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

Calling Error without any parameters (syntax 2) displays the error message of 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.

Miscellaneous

  • Timers (TimerSys) are not stopped when this function is called.
  • The caption of the button is displayed in the language used by Windows on the current computer.
  • iPhone/iPad This function must not be used:
    • in the event "Resizing" of the window. Otherwise, the application will be locked.
    • in the event "Changing the orientation" of the window.
    • in the event "Move to the foreground" associated with the project.
      Remark: However, the function can be used in the event "Move to the foreground" of a window.
    • in a thread.

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.
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). 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.
