Members

cbSize

Type: UINT

Specifies the structure size, in bytes.

hwndParent

Type: HWND

Handle to the parent window. This member can be NULL.

hInstance

Type: HINSTANCE

Handle to the module that contains the icon resource identified by the pszMainIcon or pszFooterIcon members, and the string resources identified by the pszWindowTitle, pszMainInstruction, pszContent, pszVerificationText, pszExpandedInformation, pszExpandedControlText, pszCollapsedControlText or pszFooter members.

dwFlags

Type: TASKDIALOG_FLAGS

Specifies the behavior of the task dialog. This parameter can be a combination of flags from the following group:

ValueMeaning
TDF_ENABLE_HYPERLINKS

Enables hyperlink processing for the strings specified in the pszContent, pszExpandedInformation and pszFooter members. When enabled, these members may point to strings that contain hyperlinks in the following form:


<A HREF="executablestring">Hyperlink Text</A>

Warning: Enabling hyperlinks when using content from an unsafe source may cause security vulnerabilities.

Note  Task Dialogs will not actually execute any hyperlinks. Hyperlink execution must be handled in the callback function specified by pfCallback. For more details, see TaskDialogCallbackProc.

TDF_USE_HICON_MAIN

Indicates that the dialog should use the icon referenced by the handle in the hMainIcon member as the primary icon in the task dialog. If this flag is specified, the pszMainIcon member is ignored.

TDF_USE_HICON_FOOTER

Indicates that the dialog should use the icon referenced by the handle in the hFooterIcon member as the footer icon in the task dialog. If this flag is specified, the pszFooterIcon member is ignored.

TDF_ALLOW_DIALOG_CANCELLATION

Indicates that the dialog should be able to be closed using Alt-F4, Escape, and the title bar's close button even if no cancel button is specified in either the dwCommonButtons or pButtons members.

TDF_USE_COMMAND_LINKS

Indicates that the buttons specified in the pButtons member are to be displayed as command links (using a standard task dialog glyph) instead of push buttons. When using command links, all characters up to the first new line character in the pszButtonText member will be treated as the command link's main text, and the remainder will be treated as the command link's note. This flag is ignored if the cButtons member is zero.

TDF_USE_COMMAND_LINKS_NO_ICON

Indicates that the buttons specified in the pButtons member are to be displayed as command links (without a glyph) instead of push buttons. When using command links, all characters up to the first new line character in the pszButtonText member will be treated as the command link's main text, and the remainder will be treated as the command link's note. This flag is ignored if the cButtons member is zero.

TDF_EXPAND_FOOTER_AREA

Indicates that the string specified by the pszExpandedInformation member is displayed at the bottom of the dialog's footer area instead of immediately after the dialog's content. This flag is ignored if the pszExpandedInformation member is NULL.

TDF_EXPANDED_BY_DEFAULT

Indicates that the string specified by the pszExpandedInformation member is displayed when the dialog is initially displayed. This flag is ignored if the pszExpandedInformation member is NULL.

TDF_VERIFICATION_FLAG_CHECKED

Indicates that the verification checkbox in the dialog is checked when the dialog is initially displayed. This flag is ignored if the pszVerificationText parameter is NULL.

TDF_SHOW_PROGRESS_BAR

Indicates that a Progress Bar is to be displayed.

TDF_SHOW_MARQUEE_PROGRESS_BAR

Indicates that an Marquee Progress Bar is to be displayed.

TDF_CALLBACK_TIMER

Indicates that the task dialog's callback is to be called approximately every 200 milliseconds.

TDF_POSITION_RELATIVE_TO_WINDOW

Indicates that the task dialog is positioned (centered) relative to the window specified by hwndParent. If the flag is not supplied (or no hwndParent member is specified), the task dialog is positioned (centered) relative to the monitor.

TDF_RTL_LAYOUT

Indicates that text is displayed reading right to left.

TDF_NO_DEFAULT_RADIO_BUTTON

Indicates that no default item will be selected.

TDF_CAN_BE_MINIMIZED

Indicates that the task dialog can be minimized.

TDIF_SIZE_TO_CONTENT

This flag is deprecated. Use TDF_SIZE_TO_CONTENT instead.

TDF_SIZE_TO_CONTENT

Indicates that the width of the task dialog is determined by the width of its content area. This flag is ignored if cxWidth is not set to 0.

 

dwCommonButtons

Type: TASKDIALOG_COMMON_BUTTON_FLAGS

Specifies the push buttons displayed in the task dialog. If no common buttons are specified and no custom buttons are specified using the cButtons and pButtons members, the task dialog will contain the OK button by default. This parameter may be a combination of flags from the following group:

ValueMeaning
TDCBF_OK_BUTTON

The task dialog contains the push button: OK.

TDCBF_YES_BUTTON

The task dialog contains the push button: Yes.

TDCBF_NO_BUTTON

The task dialog contains the push button: No.

TDCBF_CANCEL_BUTTON

The task dialog contains the push button: Cancel. If this button is specified, the task dialog will respond to typical cancel actions (Alt-F4 and Escape).

TDCBF_RETRY_BUTTON

The task dialog contains the push button: Retry.

TDCBF_CLOSE_BUTTON

The task dialog contains the push button: Close.

 

pszWindowTitle

Type: PCWSTR

hMainIcon

Type: HICON

A handle to an Icon that is to be displayed in the task dialog. This member is ignored unless the TDF_USE_HICON_MAIN flag is specified. If this member is NULL and the TDF_USE_HICON_MAIN is specified, no icon will be displayed.

pszMainIcon

Type: PCWSTR

Pointer that references the icon to be displayed in the task dialog. This parameter is ignored if the USE_HICON_MAIN flag is specified. Otherwise, if this parameter is NULL or the hInstance parameter is NULL, no icon will be displayed. This parameter must be an integer resource identifier passed to the MAKEINTRESOURCE macro or one of the following predefined values:

ValueMeaning
TD_ERROR_ICON

A stop-sign icon appears in the task dialog.

TD_WARNING_ICON

An exclamation-point icon appears in the task dialog.

TD_INFORMATION_ICON

An icon consisting of a lowercase letter i in a circle appears in the task dialog.

The default button for the task dialog. This may be any of the values specified in nButtonID members of one of the TASKDIALOG_BUTTON structures in the pButtons array, or one of the IDs corresponding to the buttons specified in the dwCommonButtons member:

IDCANCELMake the Cancel button the default.
IDNOMake the No button the default.
IDOKMake the OK button the default.
IDRETRYMake the Retry button the default.
IDYESMake the Yes button the default.
IDCLOSEMake the Close button the default.

 

If this member is zero or its value does not correspond to any button ID in the dialog, then the first button in the dialog will be the default.

cRadioButtons

If this parameter is NULL, the verification checkbox is not displayed in the task dialog. If the pfVerificationFlagChecked parameter of TaskDialogIndirect is NULL, the checkbox is not enabled.

pszExpandedInformation

Type: PCWSTR

Pointer that references the string to be used for displaying additional information. This parameter can be either a null-terminated string or an integer resource identifier passed to the MAKEINTRESOURCE macro. The additional information is displayed either immediately below the content or below the footer text depending on whether the TDF_EXPAND_FOOTER_AREA flag is specified. If the TDF_ENABLE_HYPERLINKS flag is specified for the dwFlags member, then this string may contain hyperlinks in the form: <A HREF="executablestring">Hyperlink Text</A>. WARNING: Enabling hyperlinks when using content from an unsafe source may cause security vulnerabilities.
