Show Message - how to make use of buttons

Wondering how I can make use of the OK / Cancel buttons when I add a Show Message step to a script. What I want to do is continue the script if the user responds by clicking OK, but abort the script if the user clicks Cancel.

I thought if I followed the Show Message step with an If step . . . but I don't know how to refer to the value of the button from the message box.

Hoping someone can point me in the right direction . . .

Version: v6.x

Platform: Mac OS X Jaguar

Try this...

Set Error Capture(On)

Show Message("Whatever you want to say")

if (status(currentmessagechoice) = 1)

OK was pressed, do something here

else

Exit Script

Endif

basically the status(currentmessagechoice) returns 1, 2 or 3. 1 is the rightmost button (also the default button, and considered to be the first button), 2 is the next rightmost and 3 is the leftmost button.

Hope this helps.

Thank you very much!

So far I just have my script confirming my choice with another message box ( "You answered OK" or "You chose Cancel") and I'm getting the right message box for the right action.

So now I can go on and add the actual functions.

I really appreciate the help! grin.gif
