Lesson 5. Using Dialog Boxes > Using the Components of a Dialog Box

Using the Components of a Dialog Box

Dialog boxes vary in complexity depending on the program, the procedure, and the number of options in the actual box. Some simply ask you to confirm an operation before it is executed; others ask you to choose, for example, a drive, folder, file name, file type, network path, or any of numerous other options.

The following list briefly explains the components of a dialog box. Not all dialog boxes contain all components. The dialog box in Figure 5.1 is a dialog box from the Microsoft Word program. We chose this box for our example as it contains many of the components that can be found in dialog boxes, and to represent the fact that dialog boxes are found in Windows applications as well as in Windows 2000 itself.
