The Dialogs plugin provides a few convenient functions to quickly show a dialog. It supports the following types of dialogs:

  • Error dialog
  • Info dialog
  • Input dialog
  • Question dialog
  • Select dialog
  • Warning dialog

Currently this plugin is only supported in the Smart Client. ServoyForge hosts a drop-in replacement for the Dialogs plugin adds support for the same type of Dialogs and this plugin, but then equally supported in both the Smart and Web Client. This Dialogs module can be found here.
