Hi!

I'm looking for good component implementing standard Windows message box which also has a checkbox allowing user do turn displaying this message off... It also must be working under BCB 4.0.

Anybody know something like this?

Thanks in advance, amv.

There is a freeware component at

Really amv you should make/take a normal form and put a checkmark that after the user close the form an information about dont show this form at future is saved.
if need request a sample.

Concerning my answer, take a look at some info on the component.

This unit provides "Don't Show Again" dialog and form services.  Included is a form class that you can descend your own forms from, routines for showing standarad TForm descendants, and replacement rountines for the MessageDlg function.  DSA services allow the user to specify whether or not they want to see the dialog or form in the future with only minimal effort on the application programmer's part.

The dialog has a check box positioned at the bottom left corner which the user can check to specify that he does not wish to see it again. If checked, calling the function again will not display the dialog, it will simply return a default value immediately.

Procedures to get and set the state of the dialog are also provided so that you can programmatically re enable a dialog that has been hidden by the user.

Components

TDSAForm

Routines
DSAClear
DSAFormClear
DSAFormGetState
DSAFormSetState
DSAGetState
DSAIdentsClear
DSAIdentsGetState
DSAIdentsMessageDlg
DSAIdentsSetState
DSAIdentsShowModal
DSAMessageDlg
DSASetState
DSAShowModal
Register

Constants
DefaultFilename
DontShowMsgText
DSA_CHECKBOX_NAME
RegRootKey
UseRegistry

As you can see if allows the programmer to get/set the status for "Don't show" another time. There are other nice feature for this component also.
