Prompt - Halt all Activity like Dialog box

Avatar

01-12-2008

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?

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?
