  • OK Dialogue box - Bug or normal?

    I noticed when using a dialogue box with a single OK button the Close window control is active (the X in the corner). It is not active for any dialogue boxes that have multiple buttons.

    Stranger than that is the variable that saves the result (%Result%) outputs "OK" as the variable value if you click the OK button or if you click the X close window control.

    Seems to me the %Result% should be "OK" if you click OK or "" if you close the window. Maybe this is by design or windows standard but it makes no sense to me.

    1. That doesn't happen here; the OK button always has the focus.

    2. Yes, that's by design, yep, that's Windows standard. Think of it this way: you can't cancel out of an OK message box. I mean, it isn't a's just a message box saying "guess what" and you go "OK." Closing the message box is exactly the same thing: "yeah, ok, whatever." There is no difference.

      Just set your dialog box to "OK/Cancel" if you need a cancel option...
