Hello I'm creating my first project for a Windows application. One of the things that I'm trying to do is show a dialog box by pressing a button on a screen. What I would be interested in is to display the dialog box but without disappearing the screen that calls this dialog box. Thank you in advance and sorry for my English.

Hi Juan,

You can do this by creating 2 screens, the first screen without the dialog, and the 2nd screen inheriting from the first one and adding the dialog. The inheritance part is accomplished by using components as described in the user guide here: https://wireframesketcher.com/help/help.html#working_with_screens/working_with_components

Let me know if you need more assistance.

Hi Peter, thanks for your reply. Can this effect be achieved by using the transparency property of a container object? Thank you

Hi Juan,

The transparency property can be useful for achieving modal visual effect. But to achieve the effect of a dialog box popping up you still need to create 2 screens as I've described above.

Thank you very much for your answer. I'm going to try it
