WEBDEV - Browser code

Displaying the dialog box

The dialog box does not lock other processes. The dialog box is displayed in the center of the page, with a DDW effect (Dim Disabled Windows).
OKCancel uses the internal page named "WEBDEVOKCancel". To include this page in your project:
  1. Click among the quick access buttons.
  2. The element creation window appears: click "Page" then "Page".
  3. Click "Internal page" in the wizard and select the internal page named "OK/Cancel".
  4. Validate. The "WEBDEVOKCancel" page is displayed in the editor.
  5. Save the page by keeping its default name.

Line break in the dialog box

The CR string (Carriage Return) can be used to force a break to the next line. For example:
IF OKCancel("Caution: you are going to delete this record" + CR + ...
"Do you want to continue?") THEN
HDelete(CUSTOMER)
END
is equivalent to:
IF OKCancel("Caution: this record will be deleted", ...
"Do you want to continue?") THEN
HDelete(CUSTOMER)
END
You also have the ability to use the syntax of multiline strings. For example:
OKCancel(
[
Caution: you are going to delete this record.
 
Do you want to continue?
])

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.
OKCancel 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.
