Dialog Boxes We Have Known
In the Beginning (NS3-)
|The Original Alert Dialog:|
|The Original Confirm Dialog:|
This dialog expects a yes/no response from the user. That is, a confirmation. Then why do the buttons read OK and Cancel, instead of Yes/No????
|The Original Prompt Dialog:|
Version 4 Browsers
Same title bar problem and it retains the old OK/Cancel buttons.
Same title bar problem.
A good, unconfusing dialog. The title bar identifies the browser and the message area contains only the message.
Only problem is the inappropriate button captions.
The old double messages have been inexplicably retained.
How many times have you wished to have some control over what is displayed in system dialogs?Have you ever wished your dialogs could:
- display a title relevant to your page, of your choosing?
- display an icon different from the default?
- display more relevant button captions
- highlight a different button choice as the default?
All of the above are possible with VBScript.
