B4A Library [Lib] BetterDialogs

I tried to improve the most useful dialogs of the Dialogs library. In my version, HTML tags are interpreted (even in the text of buttons), the InputBox uses a Masked EditText and has more options, you can check if the input is valid before closing the dialog, and the CustomDialog is fully customizable. I also solved an issue with the virtual keyboard.

MsgBox (under Gingerbread and JellyBean):

InputBox (under Gingerbread and JellyBean):

CustomDialog (under Gingerbread and JellyBean):

Another CustomDialog (under Gingerbread and JellyBean):

v1.1:
- I added a CloseDialog function;
- I added a margin parameter to the custom dialog.

v1.2:
- I fixed a bug in InputBox when there's a default value;
- I added the BackKeyPressed event for custom dialogs.

v1.3:
- I added a PasswordMode option to the InputBox;
- I added a CancelOnTouchOutside option.

v1.4:
- I added a CursorPosition option to the InputBox.

v2.0:
- I moved the CustomDialog parameters to the BD_CustomDlgParams class.
- I added two new parameters: Duration and DialogGravity.
- I removed the Margin parameter and added the MarginHeight parameter (to be used when Gravity is set to TOP).
- The BodyWidth and BodyHeight parameters defines now accurately the size of the dialog body.

v2.1:
- I added a "closing" event raised just before a custom dialog is dismissed. You can cancel the closure by returning False.

v2.11:
- I added the "DlgResponse" parameter to the Closing event.

This library does not work with Android versions < 2.
It requires another library: Masked EditText

I'm having a problem with CustomDialog, even though OpenKeyboard = true, the keyboard refuses to popup when I click the textbox.

You cannot. DonManfred has to change his code to make it work.

Hi

Is it possible to have an InputBox dialog that prompts for a password/passcode of up to 10 digits but which doesn't show 10 dots in the input field?

I want the input field to be completely blank but still obscure the characters when they are typed and also restrict the number of characters entered to 10.

Regards

Joe

If you don't want to display anything, then don't use an InputBox (the EditText is useless) and create a custom dialog with a numeric keyboard (10 buttons and you're done).
