Windows 10 Message

PB Ultimate Suite Windows 10 message is a new way to display messages to users. It replaces the traditional PowerBuilder MessageBox function, offering a more modern look and feel.

PB Ultimate Suite PowerMessage


//The easiest way to use PowerMessage is to create a global variable for your application:

n_cst_powermessage gnv_message

//The PowerMessage object is autoinstantiated, so you can start using it immediately:

gnv_message.MessageBox("My Title", "This is my message.")

//By default, PowerMessage uses the top most window in your application for the message overlay. 
//You can explicitly set the parent window by calling the of_Register method:


//PowerMessage also has theme capabilities. You set the theme just like every other contol. 
//Early on in your application lifecyle (e.g. when the application opens), you can call of_SetTheme. 
//For a more modern look, use the Windows10_* themes. If you like the "BLUE" theme for your
//application, use the Windows10_BLUE theme for PowerMessage.


//If you prefer not to declare a global variable, you can use PowerMessage locally:

n_cst_powermessage lnv_message
lnv_message.MessageBox("My Title", "This is my message.")
