View Full Version : alert not waiting

17 Sep 2009, 10:51 AM
hello all,

I'm trying to pop the user a message and then redirect them to a different page:

Ext.Msg.alert('Status', 'Change successfully commited!',location.replace('Main.cfm'));

however, it does not wait for the user to click OK, it just shows the message and then moves on.

Any ideas?

Read the docs more carefully

Utility class for generating different styles of message boxes. The alias Ext.Msg can also be used.

Note that the MessageBox is asynchronous. Unlike a regular JavaScript alert (which will halt browser execution), showing a MessageBox will not cause the code to stop. For this reason, if you have code that should only run after some user feedback from the MessageBox, you must use a callback function (see the function parameter for show for more details).
