Application Settings - Dialog Boxes

All dialog boxes displayed by applications are actually HTML pages acting as custom HTML dialogs. For instance: the About dialog box.

Because you may want to customize the contents of these dialog boxes or translate them, you can edit their HTML code. However, please note that you should never modify scripts or forms inside these HTML pages. In fact, these pages are also managed by internal scripts that control how the application works.

To edit a dialog box or related resource, select it in the list and click Edit (or double-click). The internal HTML editor will appear. Press OK to save your changes. It is your responsibility to check whether the pages work fine once modified.

To import/export a dialog box or related resource, select it in the list and press XML. Then select Import/Export and you will be prompted to enter the filename for the XML file. Pages are stored as CDATA items in the XML format so you can edit them with any XML editor (or even Notepad if you wish). When you import a page, the existing one is overwritten without any prompt.

Dialog boxes use resource strings called "Strings for Dialog Boxes" for easier localization. All references to these strings are directly replaced when ExeOutput for PHP compiles the application. To insert a reference to a string for a Dialog Box, use this syntax: [#ID] where ID is the id of the string (IDs always begin with Y); example: [#YAbout] will be replaced by the value of YAbout which is "About".

By default, dialog boxes can be resized by end users. If you want to avoid this, please add the following meta tag to the HEAD section of the system HTML page's code (Trident only):

<meta name="WindowNoResize" content="1">
