Message Dialogue Components
|Date:||08 February 2014|
This unit provides various customisable message dialog box components. Three components are installed on the component palette. They are:
- This component wraps the Windows MessageBoxIndirect API call and displays a message box based on that provided by Windows. It will be suitable for most purposes and has the lighter footprint.
- This component uses the Delphi VCL CreateMessageDialog function to create a form based message box. (CreateMessageDialog is used by the standard Delphi MessageDlgXXX functions). The component provides more flexibility than either the Delphi functions or TPJWinMsgDlg. It should be used when it is necessary to display buttons or combinations of buttons that are not supported by the Windows API message box or when a finer degree of control over the appearance and behaviour of the message box is required. TPJVCLMsgDlg supports all the features of TPJWinMsgDlg and extends them. The dialogue box component's form can be customised by handling the OnShow and OnHide events.
A demo program that exercises the components is included in the download. This program requires Delphi 7 or later to compile.
The components have comprehensive online documentation.
There is also an FAQ page.
