need to run task from yes or no button

4 posts in this topic

when a user selects yes or no from a message box how do I plug that into an if then statement?

here is what I have so far. I'm testing with message boxes instead of actual commands to reboot.

MsgBox(4100, "Reboot Now?", "Select yes to reboot now or No to postpone")

$msg = ""

If $msg = 6 then

MsgBox(4096, "reboot")

Else

MsgBox(4096, "NO reboot")

EndIf

You need to set $msg equal to the msgbox to get the return value:

$i_ReturnVal = MsgBox(4100, "Reboot Now?", "Select yes to reboot now or No to postpone")
If $i_ReturnVal = 6 then
    MsgBox(4096,"Rebooting...", "reboot")
Else
    MsgBox(4096,"Not Rebooting", "NO reboot")
EndIf
