Lesson 4. Using Dialog Boxes > What is a Dialog Box?

What is a Dialog Box?

Windows and Windows applications use dialog boxes to exchange information with you. As you learned in Lesson 3, a menu command followed by an ellipsis (…) indicates that a dialog box will appear. A dialog box asks for related information the program needs in order to complete the operation.

Windows also displays dialog boxes to give you information. For example, Windows might display a dialog box to warn you about a problem (as in “File already exists, Overwrite?”) or to confirm that an operation should take place (to confirm you want to delete a file, for example).
