Classes that implement IGetStringDialog

Classes Description
GetStringDialog A dialog used for getting a string.


The get string dialog is a dialog used for getting user input in the form of a string.

To get access to the IGetStringDialog interface, create a new GetStringDialog object.

The following code shows a GetStringDialog and reports the string value that was entered in the dialog. You would get m_app from the hook in ICommand::OnCreate().


IGetStringDialog pGetStrDlg = new GetStringDialogClass();
bool bOK = pGetStrDlg.DoModal("Please enter a string", "String:", "Hello", m_app.hWnd);
if (bOK)

[Visual Basic .NET]

Dim pGetStrDlg As IGetStringDialog = New GetStringDialogClass()
Dim bOK As Boolean = pGetStrDlg.DoModal("Please enter a string", "String:", "Hello", m_app.hWnd)
If bOK Then
End If
