Return Value when MsgBox is closed by "x" button

Recommended Posts

ConsoleWrite("msgbox button pressed id: " & msgbox(0,0,"msgbox") & @CRLF)

How to determinate wheter user click on "OK" button or "x" button? Script above always gives "1" as return value for function MsgBox.

As you are using the $MB_OK flag, the MsgBox is considered as "for info only" and Window does not distinguish between the various actions. If you look at the returns from MsgBoxes with multiple buttons, you usually find that the [X] returns the same value as the "Cancel" button.

If you really want to distinguish when the user closes the dialog with the [X], try my ExtMsgBox UDF - that does give a unique return.
