Procedure DialogGetNumber(message, reference, decimals, title)


The procedure DialogGetNumber displays a small dialog box in which the user can enter a single numerical value. The dialog box remains on the screen (and thus halts the execution) until the user presses either the OK or the Cancel button.

        message,        ! (input) string expression
        reference,      ! (input/output) scalar numerical identifier
        [decimals,]     ! (optional) integer
        [title]         ! (optional) string expression



A scalar string expression containing the text you want to display in front of the edit field.


A scalar identifier. When creating the dialog box, its value is used to fill the edit field. After the user presses the OK button, the edited value is returned through this argument.


A integer expression to indicate the number of decimals that is displayed initially.


A scalar string expression containing the text that you want to appear in the title of the dialog box.

Return Value

The procedure returns 1 if the user has pressed the OK button, and 0 if he has pressed the Cancel button.
