wait with dialog

Postby jps01 on Mon Nov 06, 2017 12:01 am

Is it possible to use wait in conjunction with a dialog box? What I'd like to do is offer a dialog box to the user for some input, but if the users does not submit the input within 30 sec, close the box. Ideally it would be best to know nothing was submitted so default settings could be set automatically, but I can preset the defaults before offering the dialog so that's not really important.

at the moment there is this line of code which works fine, but waits until 'OK' or 'Cancel' is pressed to continue the script.

if(!ShowDialog(dd 0 &controls)) ret

Thanks for any help.

I poked around and seems the only way to manage a timeout on a dialog box is to edit a system function which is not allowed. Any other ideas?
