Dialog Plugin


The Dialog Plugin for Servoy Smart Client provides you with a more informative and flexible alternative to the default Dialog Plugin.

Additionally there is a method to create a password window .
The window can show a login name/password and/or check password.
It is an alternative to the login window from Servoy and is created to be used in your own login solution.
Additionally you can create a milky white progress layer for tasks that are not too intense.

The Dialog Plugin has the following methods:

Shows a dialog like you use to with the default Servoy Dialog Plugin.

You have 2 new options:

  • Replace the default icon with a custom icon
  • Add a (by default hidden) explanatory message to the bottom of the dialog

The same dialogs as with the default Dialogs Plugin are available:

  • showDialog
  • showErrorDialog
  • showInfoDialog
  • showInputDialog
  • showQuestionDialog
  • showSelectDialog
  • showWarningDialog

Show a password dialog with a username and/or a password and/or a check on the password

After starting the progress screen the user is presented with a milky white layer on top of the Servoy window and a spinner.


  • Whenever a custom icon is needed in the dialog.
  • Whenever an extra field in the dialog is needed to explain the message.
  • Whenever a password is needed for custom login (Servoy 3.0 with LDAPclient Plugin).

The Dialog Plugin should be your first choice!.

We published our API Specifications for the Dialog Plug-in as a future and current reference.

After downloading the Dialog Plug-in using our Components Manager a sample solution {servoy_root}/solutions/it2be-examples/it2be-dialog.servoy is installed.
You can import the sample solution into Servoy Developer and you will have some (basic) code examples of how to use the Dialog Plug-in.
