Dialog Box Questions

Dialog Box Questions

Dialog Box Questions

Is it possible to prevent a dialog box from closing upon pushing a button.  I know I can have a dialog function use a case 2 (button value changed) to determine the action to take.  Is it possible to tell it not to close the dialog though?

I know I can loop the dialog until they cancel, but is it possible to have the new dialog box open in the same location as it was closed.

RE: Dialog Box Questions

I don't think it's possible to not close the box. If you're interested in real functionality you should move to VBA as it will give you many more options.

I would think you could store the top and left of the box in variables upon close and then use them in the dialog box to re-open it in the same location.


RE: Dialog Box Questions

Any idea where I how to determine the top and left values when the box is closed?

RE: Dialog Box Questions

No, but my guess would be dlg.top and dlg.left. The return on this will be small for a large amount of work.

Good luck,
