Show returns a MessageBoxResult value that specifies which button on a message box a user clicked. MessageBoxButton specifies which buttons are displayed on a message box.

The result value that is returned from a message box depends on what buttons the message box has and how a user closes a message box:

  • On a message box that has an OK button, OK is returned if a user clicks the OK button, clicks the Close button in the title bar, or presses the ESC key.

  • On a message box that has an OK button and a Cancel button, OK is returned if a user clicks the OK button. If a user clicks the Cancel button or the Close button in the title bar, Cancel is returned.

  • On a message box that has a Yes button and a No button, the Close button in the title bar is disabled. Consequently, Yes is returned if a user clicks the Yes button, and No is returned if a user clicks the No button.

  • On a message box that has a Yes button, a No button, and a Cancel button, Yes is returned if the Yes button is clicked and No is returned if the No button is clicked. If a user clicks the Cancel button or the Close button in the title bar, Cancel is returned.
