Prompt - Halt all Activity like Dialog box

Avatar

Not applicable
Is there a way to make a subform have characteristics similar to a dialog box? I made a custom popup messagebox but I have 2 main issues:

1) Everything in the background is still clickable.

2) It doesnt act like a prompt and the next bits of code continue to run.



Thanks,

No you cannot make it act like a messageBox. Why not use an app.alert or an app.response if you are trying to get input?

app.alert never worked for me... Only xfa.host.messageBox does..

if you put an app.alert("test") the word test wil appear in a dialog box ...ar you saying that it does not appear when you run your form?
