Remarks

To show an alert window displaying a specific information, you can create an AlertInfo object with information to be displayed, and pass it to the AlertControl.Show method. An AlertInfo object's properties allow you to specify the caption, text, and image to be displayed in alert windows. In addition, you can set custom data to the AlertInfo.Tag property. You can subsequently use this data while processing events for alert windows (AlertControl.BeforeFormShow or AlertControl.AlertClick).

Examples

The following example shows how to add custom buttons to an AlertControl.

It's assumed that an AlertControl control has been added to the form at design time. In the example, two custom buttons are added to the control's AlertControl.Buttons collection. The first button is a regular button, which when clicked, produces the AlertControl.ButtonClick event. The second button has checked and unchecked states. Clicking this button fires the AlertControl.ButtonDownChanged event.

The result is shown below:

AlertWindow_CustomButtons_ex

using DevExpress.XtraBars.Alerter;

// Create a regular custom button.
AlertButton btn1 = new AlertButton(Image.FromFile(@"c:\folder-16x16.png"));
btn1.Hint = "Open file";
btn1.Name = "buttonOpen";
// Create a check custom button.
AlertButton btn2 = new AlertButton(Image.FromFile(@"c:\clock-16x16.png"));
btn2.Style = AlertButtonStyle.CheckButton;
btn2.Down = true;
btn2.Hint = "Alert On";
btn2.Name = "buttonAlert";
// Add buttons to the AlertControl and subscribe to the events to process button clicks
alertControl1.Buttons.Add(btn1);
alertControl1.Buttons.Add(btn2);
alertControl1.ButtonClick += new AlertButtonClickEventHandler(alertControl1_ButtonClick);
alertControl1.ButtonDownChanged += 
    new AlertButtonDownChangedEventHandler(alertControl1_ButtonDownChanged);

// Show a sample alert window.
AlertInfo info = new AlertInfo("New Window", "Text");
alertControl1.Show(this, info);

void alertControl1_ButtonDownChanged(object sender, 
AlertButtonDownChangedEventArgs e) {
    if (e.ButtonName == "buttonOpen") {
        //...
    }
}

void alertControl1_ButtonClick(object sender, AlertButtonClickEventArgs e) {
    if (e.ButtonName == "buttonAlert") {
        //...
    }
}
