Hi Guys
Search but couldn't find anything
Is there a response Message Box function in AGK.

Example:
return = messagebox("This is a Message","No","Yes")
if return = "No"
// do no
elseif Return = "Yes"
// do Yes
endif

or
return = messagebox("this is a message",Continue", "Cancel")
if return = 0
// do no
elseif Return = 1
// do Yes
endif

Kevin Cross' OryUI might be an option?

i'm planning to use it myself in my own project.
I played a bit with it and looks great, very complete.

It depends on what you want to accomplish. You can send Push Notifications on Android, which end up in your smartphone a similar way something like WhatsApp would notify you of the latest message you've received. I'm not sure how successful this works if you want an app to run in the background and actually do stuff. For example, you've made a Tamagotchi style app and the push notification tells you it is hungry, so you need to open the app etc.

Honestly, there are some fun applications for this...

@Raven, the OP wants a dialog/message box that allows for multiple buttons/responses. MessageBox just has the one 'Ok' button.

OryUI does have a dialog system, and you may be able to get away with using just a couple of the framework include files if a dialog with options is all that you want. Or if anything you could probably look at how it was done and just create a mini simpler version for your own projects.
