Displaying a Form as a Dialog Box
/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/View/Form/Displaying a Form as a Dialog Box.xml
A dialog box is a window that is displayed to the user. The dialog box typically asks the user for some input. The dialog box is modal, meaning that the user must first close the dialog box before proceeding. There are several techniques in Alpha Anywhere for displaying dialog boxes, such as designing a message box (which uses the UI_MSG_BOX() function), designing an XDialog box (which uses the UI_DLG_BOX() function), or prompting for input (which uses the UI_GET_TEXT() function). Another way in which you can display a dialog box is by opening a form as a dialog box.
Open a Form as a Dialog Box
/pages/Guides/Desktop/Design/Platform/Xbasic Action Scripting/Forms/Open a Form as a Dialog Box.xml
The Open a Form as a Dialog Box action provides a alternative approach to displaying a dialog. Rather than creating an Xdialog or message box, you select a predefined form to open as a modal dialog box. The form you select to open as a dialog must contain buttons. Using the Script Genie, you define actions to take place according which buttons are selected by the user.
