I want to change the messageBox behaviour in my script

Hello,

I have a script that looks like this:

macroScript AutoBackToggle
	category:"Haider"
	buttonText:"AB-Toggle"
	toolTip:"AutoBackup Toggle"
(
	on isChecked do (autoBackup.enabled)
 
	on execute do 
	if autoBackup.enabled == true then 
	(
		autoBackup.enabled = false 
		/*print (autoBackup.enabled)*/
		messageBox "Autobackup disabled." title:"Autobackup State" beep:false
	)
	else 
	(
		autoBackup.enabled = true
		/*print (autoBackup.enabled)*/
		messageBox "Autobackup enabled." title:"Autobackup State" beep:false
	)
)

The messageBox command will lock the user, forcing one to press OK before continuing.
How do I change the popup to be a regular information popup that doesn't "lock" the viewport?

I noticed some strange behaviours

- the rollout shows up upon Max startup, before I have pressed the button.
- rollout reappears even though I close it

Kind regards

@But if you looking better solution then try this
I emailed you last time because I had some problems. It still doesnt work with me. Will look into it again and return to you with complete report on what happens.

Thanks for the fix
Could you please add so that if I dont close the popup, but press the button again, it kills the popup and recreats it, showing the right message?

Kind regards

Try with this

-- change this line
on isChecked do (msgRollPopup() ; autoBackup.enabled)

You're so right. I am trying to catch up learning. Until then, I am at your mercy ;)
I made these changes to make it work:

global msgRollPopup,bgaRoll
..
..
try(destroyDialog ::bgaRoll)catch()
..
..
createDialog bgaRoll 150 26 style:#(#style_titlebar, #style_sysmenu, #style_toolwindow)

I don't know what is the problem, really.

Hehe, yep :)
We'll check it later again.

Could you please add so that if I dont close the popup (red x), but press the toolbar-button again, it kills the old popup and recreats it, showing the right message?
