A pop-up panel is a panel that pops up, accepts user input, and then disappears. Another term for pop-up panel is modal dialog box. You can stack pop-up panels, with each new pop-up panel appearing on top of the previous one. When a pop-up panel is active it appears in the foreground and is the only panel or pop-up the user can operate.
The User Interface Library contains a collection of predefined pop-up panels for common operations, such as prompting the user for input, selecting a file, and graphing numerical data.
Specific function calls invoke each predefined pop-up panel. The function displays its corresponding pop-up panel and waits for the user to select an action. Then the pop-up disappears and control returns to the program.
|Note In addition to the following predefined pop-up panels, you can use InstallPopup to change any panel to a pop-up panel.|
