Windows messagebox example(s)


#1

This is probably documented somewhere, but I thought ruby win32
programmers on the list may find this of use.

require ‘Win32API’

def message_box

Create a Windows MessageBox.

0 = ‘OK’ Button

1 = ‘OK’ ‘Cancel’ Buttons

2 = ‘Abort’ ‘Retry’ ‘Ignore’ Buttons

3 = ‘Yes’ ‘No’ ‘Cancel’ Buttons

4 = ‘Yes’ ‘No’ Buttons

5 = ‘Retry’ ‘Cancel’ Buttons

6 = ‘Cancel’ ‘Try Again’ ‘Continue’

#######################

16 = ‘OK’ Button with ‘Error’ Symbol

… SEE ABOVE EXAMPLES

22 = ‘Cancel’ ‘Try Again’ ‘Continue’ Buttons with ‘Error’

#######################################

32 = ‘OK’ Button with ‘Question’ Symbol

… SEE ABOVE EXAMPLES

38 = ‘Cancel’ ‘Try Again’ ‘Continue’ Buttons with ‘Question’

#########################################

48 = ‘OK’ Button with ‘Warning’ Symbol

… SEE ABOVE EXAMPLES

54 = ‘Cancel’ ‘Try Again’ ‘Continue’ Buttons with ‘Warning’

########################################

64 = ‘OK’ Button with ‘Info’ Symbol

… SEE ABOVE EXAMPLES

70 = ‘Cancel’ ‘Try Again’ ‘Continue’ Buttons with ‘Info’

######################################
mb = Win32API.new(“user32”, “MessageBox”, [‘i’,‘p’,‘p’,‘i’], ‘i’)
mb.call(0, ‘message’, “title”, 0)
end

x = message_box

def message_box

mb = Win32API.new(“user32”, “MessageBox”, [‘i’,‘p’,‘p’,‘i’], ‘i’)
mb.call(0, ‘message’, “title”, 0)
end

x = message_box

I personnaly prefer using DL::Importable :

require ‘dl/import’

module User32
extend DL::Importable
dlload ‘user32’
extern ‘long MessageBox(long, char*, char*, long)’
end

User32.messageBox(0, ‘i love dl’, ‘hello’, 0)

A couple of things.

  1. You’re replying to a thread that is over four years old. My
    newsserver happens to have it, and I happened to have it flagged to
    watch, but this is generally not a good way to get a question
    answered. You should start a new thread instead.

  2. Your question makes no sense. The discussion was about using the
    Win32 API to display a message box. The Win32 API is the OS API for
    32 bit versions of Windows, so it is inherently client-side.
