It is very useful to present a popup message to the user so I decided to add show message command in the format:

show message/text="God save the Queen"/title="England"

We also need to check the user access level and present a question dialogue to get the users' reply. Something like
If userAccessLevel > 10 and DEMO == 1
    MessageBox("Application in DEMO mode. No operation permitted.", "DEMO Mode!")
Else
    If EMERGENCY == 0
        x = QuestionBox("Do you want to turn off all the motors?", "Emergency")
        If  x == 6
            EMERGENCY = 1
        Else
            EMERGENCY = 0
        Endif
    Else
        EMERGENCY = 0
    Endif
Endif

Can't you use a push button with confirm action ?

We need the user reply in a variable
r = QuestionBox("Do you want to do something?", "Question");

What do you think of this patch?

There is a similar function in the configurator script named ConfirmDialog (in wb/lib/wb/src/wb_wnav_command.cpp) that also has an option whether to display a cancel button or not. I would prefer to have the same name in xtt.

Isn't the fact that it is modal going to block updating of alarm lists and graphs? I don't think that is acceptable.

Hello Claes,

This one is similar to the wb script as you requested. What do you think?
