C++ Code

if (MessageDlg(prompt, mtConfirmation, TMsgDlgButtons() << mbYes << mbNo, 0) == mrYes)

What does the code in bold mean? This is Borland C++, though it shouldn't matter. I am trying to figure if TMsgDlgButtons() is accepting parameters?? or is the << operator used as left shit bit operator?? Or anything else. Pls assume very little C++ experience.

It looks like whatever TMsgDlgButtons() returns (whether it is a function or a constructor for that type) it has overloaded the << operator to allow the setting of values in one operation. In this case it looks like the object is being primed to accept a Yes and No user input (so, it probably displays those buttons).

This is what the official help document says:

TMsgDlgButtons defines a set of values used by MessageDlg and MessageDlgPos.

Unit

Dialogs

enum TMsgDlgBtn { mbYes, mbNo, mbOK, mbCancel, mbAbort, mbRetry, mbIgnore, mbAll, mbNoToAll, mbYesToAll, mbHelp };
