Thread: Input Dialog Boxes

    Input Dialog Boxes

    Does anyone know, how to create input dialog boxes that would have a similar
    effect of writing: JOptionPane.showInputDialog("prompt") in Java?
    Everything I read seems to point to using Forms and makes the whole process
    long and cumbersome. Is there a simple and easy way to do this?

    Re: Input Dialog Boxes


    I did a quick search through System.Winforms namespace in the documentation
    and it did not turn up anyhting. Specifically i was looking for an analog
    of Visual Basic's InputBox function.

    So i guess you're stuck using a Windform with textbox on it. You can probably
    design a nice one anyway and just reuse that in the future - should be simple
    enough to do that because VB's InputBox is nothing to write home about anyway.

    Microsoft: How about including an InputBox class into .Net, huh?
