Hi everyone,

I've been trying for long time to include the Icons of a messageBox within a dialog... with no success all I can do is print screen the icon and include it as an image but it does not have the same definition as the icon itself...

I just tried inserting an item type : icon within the dialog box and it seems to insert a blank space... so probably it possible to do it but I can't seem to figure out how to access those Icon. Is there anyone that would know how to do so?

If I understand you correctly, you're creating a custom dialog beacuse of the captions of the Yes/No Buttons but want to use the default icons of the messageBox, right?! I this case the only way seems to use custom images in the dialog. You can find those icons in Windows's imageres.dll. Use 7-Zip to unzip its ICON folder. The *.ico files can be opened with Paint etc. to be converted into image files.

Hi there,

thanks for taking your time to answer, but unfortunately I don't want to have my own icons. I would like to use any of these 4 icons within a modal dialog. The only reason why I want to do so, is because I want to change the yes/no buttons of a message box to french (oui/non) and to do so I need to create a modal dialog, but instead of using my own icons I'd like to use the same icons as in a message box or alert box

The built-in methods xfa.host.messageBox() or app.alert() have only 4 icons available you can select by using the corresponding parameters. If you want your own icons you'll have to design a modal dialog yourself.

Here's an editor, that helps you to do this.
