win32-msgbox

win32-msgbox is a (Chicken) Scheme interface to the Windows API MessageBox function.

[procedure] (msgbox MSG #!key (title "")
                              (buttons 'ok)
                              (default-button 1)
                              (icon 'none)
                              (foreground #t)
                              (topmost #f))

Valid symbols for the buttons option are:

  • ok
  • ok/cancel
  • abort/retry/ignore
  • yes/no/cancel
  • yes/no
  • retry/cancel
  • cancel/try/continue

Valid symbols for the icon option are:

  • none
  • stop
  • question
  • exclamation
  • information

msgbox returns the symbol associated to each button (e.g. the retry button returns the 'retry symbol).

Requirements

A Windows platform of course.

Usage

(use win32-msgbox)

The -Wl,--subsystem,windows linker switch ensures that the application is built as a Windows GUI application, and not as a console application.

csc -Wl,--subsystem,windows test.scm

Example 1:

(use win32-msgbox)

(msgbox "Your public IP address is:\n\n7.19.211.65"
        title: "Info"
        buttons: 'ok
        icon: 'information)

                            buttons: 'retry/cancel
                            icon: 'exclamation))
