messagedlg question

Hi there!
Something's wrong with the result of the messagedlg() function?

messagedlg('Text',mtConfirmation,[mbYes,mbNo],0)

gives me an integer result of 3 when pressing "Yes" in the dialog at runtime.
This should correspond to the constat "mrYes", but this has an integer value of 6 so

if (messagedlg('text',mtconfirmation,[mbyes,mbno,0)=mryes)
 then // Yes clicked

does not work properly.

Any ideas?

In qcontrols.pas i found the following definition:
Const
  mrNone     = 0;
  mrOk       = mrNone + 1;
  mrCancel   = mrOk + 1;  
  mrYes      = mrCancel + 1;

... but still inttostr(mrYes)="6" ... strange

mrYes in qcontrols.pas has obviously the value 3. The mrYes constant of controls.pas has the value 6.
So you most probably have qcontrols and controls in your uses. That is wrong.

In my source files:  (Delphi 3)

In Controls.pas

mrYes = idYes;

and in Windows.pas

IDYES = 6;

Which might explain why you get a 6.  Which version are you using?

Yes, that's it!
Never do something like

uses controls,qdialogs;

It results in the problem I stated above.
