The minimum required code to show a message box is:
But that would only display a box with no info and an OK-button. The dialog would return a response which contains the index of the button the user clicked.
Adding more info to the message box
Lets add more info the the box, A question and two buttons and use the callback method as well.
The code above would produce a message box looking like this:
typedisplays different icons in the messagebox.
buttonsis an array of strings that will be displayed as buttons.
defaultIdsets which of the buttons should be selected when opening the box.
titledisplays a title on some platforms.
