Quick Tip:

Cancelling Dialogs
Under the Windows operating system, the Show Custom Dialog script step shows a message box with a close box. If users click the close box, then the message dialog will be dismissed. At first, this appears to cause problems but, once you realize that the close box returns a message choice of "1", then you can trap for it with the Get(LastMessageChoice) function. Your best bet is to interpret the close box as a cancel. This will allow you to place your Cancel button for the dialog at the rightmost position which also returns a message choice of "1".
