Hello, is it possible to change the appearance of the ca plex Dialog message? normally it has "Panel" as caption and the yellow triangle Symbol... is there a way to Change this gui at runtime?
thanks in advance, regards tobias
I assume you are using WinC client.
You can change the title of the message box in the .INI file (This is a general setting then ) .
Note: There is also a difference in presentation of the message box when using MFC 6 instead of default MFC 5. You can set your app to use MFC 6. using a manifest.
see: Windows XP Look and Feel for WinC - The CA Plex Wiki
thank you i will try out. best tobias
Normally the dialog should not be have the title "Panel". Please read attached help that includes Lorenz's useful info.
By default the text appearing on the title bar of a dialog or enquiry message box is the title of the panel that sends the message or the name of the sending function, if there is no panel. You can override this text by entering a title in the
[Message Box] section of the application's .INI file:
[Message Box]Title=My ApplicationAlways Override=False
In this example, the title text My Application is used for all messages, except where a FNC name NME triple has been specified for the sending function. In this case, the specified name is used instead. Set the Always Override option to True if you want the title text specified in the .INI file to be used in all cases.
And if you use the manifest you will get a dialog that looks like the follwoing BUT it does mean your whole application will look different...I have tried the manifest change with success on new dev but changing an existing application involved work and user acceptance
if you are brave Edge Forum Archive - [Edge] Advantage Plex Family - Changing the resource file in 5.5
