Question about help file statement for InputBox

Recommended Posts


I've been using InputBox in scripts for over a year.  But only today, I noticed the following in the help file:


If your script is going to use an inputbox you must include the pragma directive "#pragma compile(inputboxres, true)"

I've never had such a statement in a script.  And even scripts that are compiled work fine.

So what is the basis for the "must"?  IOW, by not having the #pragma, am I introducing a problem?

Thanks in advance for any help.
