ChoiceDialog

ChoiceDialog[expr]

puts up a standard choice dialog that displays expr together with OK and Cancel buttons, and returns True if OK is clicked and False if Cancel is clicked.

ChoiceDialog[expr,{lbl1val1,lbl2val2,}]

includes buttons with labels lbli, and returns the corresponding vali for the button clicked.

Details and Options

  • ChoiceDialog places buttons automatically, outside the area used to display expr.
  • Any expressions, including both text and graphics, can be used for expr and the lbli.
  • In the window generated by ChoiceDialog[expr], pressing TemplateBox[{return}, Key0, BaseStyle -> {Notes, FontWeight -> Plain, FontFamily -> Source Sans Pro}] is taken to be equivalent to clicking the OK button, while pressing or closing the window is taken to be equivalent to clicking the Cancel button.
  • In ChoiceDialog[expr,{lbl1->val1,}], pressing TemplateBox[{return}, Key0, BaseStyle -> {Notes, FontWeight -> Plain, FontFamily -> Source Sans Pro}] returns val1, while pressing or closing the window returns val2.
  • ChoiceDialog by default puts up a notebook with a typical choice dialog appearance. The option settings include WindowFloating->False, WindowSize->All, and WindowTitle->None.
  • ChoiceDialog by default puts up a dialog in the middle of the main display screen. Explicit settings for WindowMargins override this.
  • If the Wolfram System is run without a notebook front end, ChoiceDialog gives choices in a textual form.
