Procedure DialogGetString(message, reference, title)


The procedure DialogGetString displays a small dialog in which the user can enter a text string. The dialog 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 string parameter
        [title]         ! (optional) string expression

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.
