Hi..

I am working on ne script....that will create a .csv file as a output and copy that file to a network drive.
If the drive is not there...it mount that drive and copy that file...

I want to put something in there....that will pop-up the error message if the files are not copied due to some reason and then continue with the program.
As this script is called by another program, if I use die command it will stop there...instead I want to show error-message pop-up windiw....so user know that files are not copied...

Please advise....

#!/usr/bin/perl
use strict;
use Tk;
use Tk::Dialog;


my $mw = MainWindow->new();   #Create object
$mw->withdraw();              #Don't display main window

my $response = $mw->messageBox(
 -icon => 'question',
 -message => 'Hello World!',
 -title => 'My title',
 -type => 'AbortRetryIgnore',
);

print "response=$response\n";

If you will only be on Win32, there is a win32 only module.  The above will work on windows or unix.

For win32 only:

use Win32;

Win32::MsgBox("Message", 0 + MB_ICONINFORMATION, "Title");
