Hi,

What is the reason that every time a press the button.
It always display the message first before the window
shows up.

On the when-button-pressed trigger

show_window('window1');
message('testing');

Dear it is not that it is showing first window and then the message.

It is showing the window first and then it is showing your but what is happening is that the MESSAGE or ALERT is of high priority then window. It first show your window and then display your MESSAGE on top of it.

Regards,
Azam Khan

Is this window a small one or one that will occupy the whole screen? If the latter then use a go_item to navigate to an item on that window instead of doing the show_window.

Remember, you can't 'cover' the item that currently has 'focus'.

It's a alert message actually. What happen is it will show the alert message first then after pressing the Ok button it will then
display the small modal window. What I want is to show first
the small window then after closing the window it will display
the alert message.

when-button-pressed trigger:

show_window('window_1');
message('Testing');

It's a small modal window that I want do display first.
Then upon closing the window it will dispaly next the
alert message. This is within the when-button-pressed
trigger:
show_window('window1');
message('Testing');

I will try the go_item command to see if it will work.
Thanks!

If you want to show an alert then use 'show_alert'. If you want another canvas / window to appear after the alert then perform the 'show_alert' and then do the go_item to an item on the next canvas / window.
