How can I determine wich button will be the default on in a MessageDlg box ?

MessageDlg('bla bla ?' , mtConfirmation,
      [mbYes, mbNo], 0) = mrYes ;
I want the "No" button to be the default one.

I think u can't do that by MessageDlg

 try to use messagebox instead of messagedlg

MessageBox(handle,'Any Message','Any title', MB_YesNoCancel + MB_IconStop + MB_DefButton3)

You should be able to do it by placing the mbNo entry before the mbYes entry.  This will have the side effect of make the "No" button on the left and the "Yes" button on the right.  If you can live with that, then here is your new code:

MessageDlg('bla bla ?' , mtConfirmation, [mbNo, mbYes], 0) = mrYes;
