Demo Projects


This is the principal demo application that shows a huge number of different message box applications and their look and feel. This demo application is detailed on the MsgBox Demo page.


A user notification is a kind of tool-tip look and feel message that is displayed to the user to give him feedback when it is obvious that usage should be enforced with an additional tip. This kind of notification can be used in long running processes or to resolve complex error situations. It is used in the MsgBox project to tell the user that he should just close the dialog by using the provided choices rather than passing it via a 'back-door', such as, Alt+F4... This demo application is detailed on the User Notification Demo page.
