Disabling Alert and modal dialog box

Posted on 2001-06-19

My program opens up another application (Visio), and makes it invisible. The actions I perform in the
application cause an alert and modal dialog box to appear and prompt the user to answer a yes or no
question. I need to set the answer to NO programatically. VB says the AlertResponse property will accomplish
this. However, the line of code

appVisio.AlertResponse = 7   'where 7 is the value of IDNO

fails to work properly. Does anyone know how I can make this work? Thanks in advance.

I open an application in visio

appVisio = CreateObject("Visio.InvisibleApp")

This creates my invisible application of Visio.

I then have

appVisio.AlertResponse = 7   'where 7 is the value of IDNO

to 'supposedly' set the default value of all alert and modal dialog boxes to 'No'

As for any other code, there is none that controls this function.

try using Application.DisplayAlerts = False to stop alert boxes from showing up.  And then use Application.DisplayAlerts = True when you are done.
