Open / Save problem

Hi,
    I'm trying to write code to ask the user if he wants to save the current document before opening another, if the document has changed. The problem is that the yes / no buttons don't do what I want them to! When pressed, they both just shut the dialog box like a cancel button would.

Here's the code:

unit Suredg;

interface

uses WinTypes, WinProcs, Classes, Graphics, Forms, Controls, Buttons,
  StdCtrls, Main, ExtCtrls;

type
  Tsuredlg = class(TForm)
    Bevel1: TBevel;
    Label1: TLabel;
    BitBtn1: TBitBtn;
    BitBtn2: TBitBtn;
    BitBtn3: TBitBtn;
    procedure BitBtn1Click(Sender: TObject);
    procedure BitBtn2Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  suredlg: Tsuredlg;

implementation

{$R *.DFM}

procedure Tsuredlg.BitBtn1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
     MainForm.Saveas1Click(suredlg);
end;

procedure Tsuredlg.BitBtn2Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
     MainForm.EditPad.Modified := FALSE;
     MainForm.Open1Click(suredlg);

end;

end.


The MainForm has the following 2 procedures :

procedure TMainForm.Saveas1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
      if SaveDialog1.Execute then
  begin
    EditPad.Lines.SaveToFile(SaveDialog1.FileName);
    OpenDialog1.Filename := SaveDialog1.FileName;
    Caption := SaveDialog1.FileName;
  end;

end;

procedure TMainForm.Open1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if EditPad.Modified = TRUE then
     begin
     suredlg.ShowModal;
     exit;
     end;
  if OpenDialog1.Execute then
  begin
    EditPad.Lines.LoadfromFile(OpenDialog1.FileName);
    SaveDialog1.Filename := OpenDialog1.FileName;
    Caption := OpenDialog1.FileName;
  end;
end;


Does anyone know why it doesn't work?
Cheers

On

procedure TMainForm.Open1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if EditPad.Modified = TRUE then
  begin
    suredlg.ShowModal; //What happends if user presses BitBtn2 RECURSIVE CALL!!!!
    exit; //here the function terminates regardless of the the value of ShowModal
  end;

In my opinion you should empty the BitBtn1 and BitBtn2 Click codes. Set their modal result to mrYes, mrNo respectively and do the following:

procedure TMainForm.Open1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if EditPad.Modified then
  begin
    Suredlg.ShowModal;
    if Suredlg.ModalResult = idYes then
      Saveas1Click(Self);
  end;

  if OpenDialog1.Execute then
  begin
    EditPad.Lines.LoadfromFile(OpenDialog1.FileName);
    SaveDialog1.Filename := OpenDialog1.FileName;
    Caption := OpenDialog1.FileName;
    EditPad.Modified := false;
  end;
end;

Regards,
Igor

Cheers, Igor
   That seems to have done the trick! One problem, though. When I click 'yes' to save before opening the next document, then press 'cancel', it then opens the OpenDialog box, instead of quitting. I've tried sticking in:

procedure TMainForm.Open1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  if EditPad.Modified then
  begin
    Suredlg.ShowModal;
    if Suredlg.ModalResult = idYes then
      Saveas1Click(Self);
    if Suredlg.ModalResult = idCancel then
      exit;
 end;
.
.
.
.

This doesn't seem to do anything. I've set the ModalResult value of the cancel button to mrcancel so that's not the problem.  Is it just exiting out the if .. statement and not the procedure? If so, how can I get it to jump right out?

Cheers.

Hi friend,

if Exit code be executed the procedure sure be terminated. That seems completely correct syntaticaly, but semantically there is a problem with values mrYes, idYes or mrCancel, idCancel values. And the code above should work!

Bye,
Igor
