creates a dialog notebook containing expr and opens it in the front end.
replaces the notebook represented by the notebook object obj with the one obtained from expr.
Details and Options
- CreateDialog by default creates a notebook with options set so as to be suitable for the appearance and behavior of a typical dialog box. The option settings include Deployed->True, ShowCellBracket->False, WindowFloating->False and WindowSize->All.
- Dialog notebooks created by CreateDialog are by default opened in the middle of the main display screen. Explicit settings for WindowMargins override this.
- CreateDialog[expr] by default puts expr into a single output cell.
- If expr is a complete notebook expression, CreateDialog[expr] creates an open notebook corresponding to this expression.
- If expr is a cell or list of cells, CreateDialog[expr] creates a notebook consisting of this cell or cells.
- CreateDialog can take any notebook option.
- If no explicit setting is given for WindowTitle, no name will be displayed for a dialog.
- The additional option Modal specifies whether the dialog created by CreateDialog should be modal.
- With the default setting Modal->False, other windows can be used even when the dialog is open. With Modal->True, no other Wolfram System windows can be used until the dialog has been closed. If there is no mechanism for closing the dialog, the Wolfram System will effectively freeze.
- If DialogReturn is executed, for example as a result of clicking a button, within the window created by CreateDialog, then the window will be closed.
- In dialogs created with CreateDialog, pressing is effectively equivalent to clicking the DefaultButton, and to clicking the CancelButton.
- If the dialog contains no DefaultButton or CancelButton, pressing or will close the dialog without taking any other action.
- CreateDialog returns a NotebookObject corresponding to the notebook it creates.
- CreateDialog[expr,obj] overwrites whatever data was contained in the notebook represented by the notebook object obj.
