Description

Description:
BIS_fnc_guiMessage dialog in Arma 3

Displays an interactive message dialog in the center of the screen.

This function internally utilizes suspension (waitUntil to be specific) and therefore has to be executed in a scheduled environment.
Execution:
call
Groups:
GUI

Syntax

Syntax:
[message, header, okButton, cancelButton, parent, useParentBox, pause] call BIS_fnc_guiMessage
Parameters:
message: String or Structured Text - (Optional, default: "") message
header: String - (Optional, default: "") header text
okButton Boolean or String - (Optional, default true):
  • Boolean - enable the "OK" button
  • String - custom text for the "OK" button
cancelButton: Boolean or String - (Optional, default false):
  • Boolean - enable the "Cancel" button
  • String - custom text for the "Cancel" button
parent: Display - (Optional, default: [] call BIS fnc displayMission) parent display
useParentBox: Boolean - (Optional, default: false) try to use control inherited from "RscMessageBox" in parent instead of creating a new one
pause: Boolean - (Optional, default: true) pause simulation while message dialog is open (no effect in multiplayer)
Return Value:
Boolean - true if the "OK" button was pressed, otherwise false. Returned only after the message box is closed.

Examples

Example 1:
Because this example uses spawn, the return value of BIS_fnc_guiMessage is lost and can not be used.
["Hello World"] spawn BIS_fnc_guiMessage;
Example 2:
private _result = ["Are you sure?", "Confirm", true, true] call BIS_fnc_guiMessage; if (_result) then { systemChat "The player is sure."; } else { systemChat "The player is not sure."; };

Message boxes can be force-closed with:
uiNamespace setVariable ["BIS_fnc_guiMessage_status", false];

Calling this function can cause an game crash. When doing this you have to spawn the function or add an spawn around it so you can use the result:
[] spawn { private _result = ["Are you sure?", "Confirm", true, true] call BIS_fnc_guiMessage; // Use _result here };

This function only exists along with mission display (findDisplay 46). If this function is called before with -skipIntro parameter enabled (see Arma 3: Startup Parameters) it will result as Void.
