    Hi everyone,

    i'm looking for a real replacement of the Microsoft Silverlight MessageBox (because it's ugly ...).

    Telerik is offering the RadAlert and RadConfirm MessageBoxes, but they are not equivalent to the .net MessageBox because they don't offer an immediate result like the .net MessageBox. Or am i wrong and it can offer an immediate result like:
    DialogResult res = MessageBox.Show("Do you want to delete the item?", "Delete", MessageBoxButton.OKCancel);

    For the RadAlert and RadConfirm MessageBoxes i only find the possibilities to subscribe to their "OnClosed" Event to get the users choice. And that's to late for my needs. (

    Andy ideas what i can do?

    Hi Michael,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    The MessageBox.Show method calls a function of the browser. The MessageBox doesn't belong to Silverlight. As the MessageBox is opened modal by the browser, the browser waits for the response, and so also Silverlight has to wait for it. 

    The RadWindow components are silverlight components and we cannot implement such functionality. We cannot freeze the main thread. 

    Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information.
