SHInitDialog (Windows CE 5.0)

Send Feedback

This function resizes a dialog box to accommodate a software input panel based on parameters specified in a SHINITDLGINFO structure.

Note   For a Windows Mobile-based Pocket PC, this function is primarily used to create a full-screen dialog box with the OK button in the navigation bar. The user interface for Windows Mobile-based Pocket PCs uses many full-screen dialog boxes. Because the navigation bar has been moved to the top of the screen, the Done button has been visually removed from full-screen dialog boxes and replaced with an OK button in the navigation bar.

Syntax

BOOL SHInitDialog(
  PSHINITDLGINFO pshidi
);

Parameters

pshidi
[in] Pointer to a SHINITDLGINFO structure.

Return Values

This function returns TRUE if it is successful and FALSE if it fails.

Remarks

Smartphone does not support the SHIDIF_DONEBUTTON flag. If SHIDIF_DONEBUTTON is specified in a Pocket PC application, then SHInitDialog places the OK button on the caption for the dialog box. If a dialog box does not already have a caption, then SHInitDialog adds one. If SHIDIF_DONEBUTTON is specified and a dialog box has a Close button, SHInitDialog does not remove the Close button and adds an OK button.

The following code example shows how to use the SHInitDialog function.

SHINITDLGINFO shidi;
BOOL bSuccessInit;
case WM_INITDIALOG:
  // Create a Done button and size it.
  shidi.dwMask = SHIDIM_FLAGS;
  shidi.dwFlags = SHIDIF_SIZEDLGFULLSCREEN;
  shidi.hDlg = hDlg;
  SHInitDialog(&shidi);
  bSuccessInit = SHInitDialog(&shidi);
  break;

Windows Mobile Remarks

For a Windows Mobile-based device this function is defined in the Aygshell.h header file.

Pocket PC: Pocket PC 2000 and later
