customizing the answer dialogue box

Post by paulalsmith1000 » Sun Sep 08, 2019 8:31 pm

Evening Everyone

Just a quick question, does anyone know how to customize the background and/or text colour of the the answer dialogue box.

I searched around for a while and found variations on this:-

on preOpenStack
set the backgroundColor of this stack to black
if the environment is "standalone application" then set the backgroundColor of stack "Answer Dialog" to 231,231,231
set the loc of this stack to the screenLoc
end preOpenStack

It works fine on the desktop, but doesn't on android?

Kind regards

Hi Paul,

the ASK and ASNWER diakogs are just stacks, but only on desktop system Mac/Win/Linux!

On the mobile platforms iOS and Android, these dialogs are supplied from the underlying OS
and you cannot modify them.
