The dialog boxes always contain the same elements:
  • An icon used to quickly identify the type of message displayed (Information, Question or Error).
  • A title displayed in the title bar.
    • 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.
  • One or more buttons allowing the user to choose an answer. The number and the type of these buttons depend on the type of dialog box used.
  • A text on one or more lines corresponding to the message intended for the user.
The different types of dialog boxes

Types of dialog boxes

Several types of dialog boxes are available:
  • The information or error dialog boxes (WLanguage Warning, Error and Info functions).



    ErrorWithTimeout and InfoWithTimeout are used to display these information or error boxes without blocking the application.
  • The question dialog boxes (WLanguage YesNo and OKCancel functions).
    Yes / No

    OK / Cancel
  • The confirmation dialog boxes (WLanguage Confirm function).
  • The button that will be selected by default can be defined for each type of dialog box.
  • The caption of buttons is displayed in the language used by Windows on the current computer.
  • Some functions may not be available depending on the platform used.
Customizing the standard dialog boxes
You can:
  • Windows customize these dialog boxes and automatically apply the skin template of the current application to them (or by using multilingual dialog boxes). For more details, see: Customizing dialog boxes.
  • Windows automatically close these dialog boxes to avoid locking the application. By default, the dialog boxes are closed only when the user clicks one of their buttons. If no button is pressed, the application is locked.
    To avoid any risk of lock, use DelayBeforeClosing and specify the amount of time after which the dialog box is automatically closed.
