WinJS Tricks Series: Creating message boxes

Maybe you already heard, that you can create classic “rich client” applications in JavaScript for Windows 8. Whether it’s practical to choose JavaScript instead of C#, that’s another question, but it’s a fact, that there are problems which can be solved easier in JavaScript.

It’s a fact too, that in the beginning you won’t be productive when you create your Metro style applications in JavaScript, because the WinJS documentation is quite minimal. So I decided to start the WinJS Tricks Series to show you the solutions for problems that sooner or later you will face with when you are coding on WinJS. When you see the solution, it’s quite straightforward and logical, but without it, well….

So let’s take the simple task of popping up message boxes in WinJS! To save you some time, I tell you, that the classic alert doesn’t work. And there is no MessageBox class in WinJS. So what?

Let me introduce you to the world of message dialogs:

The Team Foundation Server has a cloud-based (of course it runs on Azure), subscription-based version, called Team Foundation Service. Because this service is currently in preview, you can register for free on http://tfspreview.com. For this price you got not only a source control, but all the nice features of TFS.

I use this service since the first internal preview release, and I really like it. It takes no time to start my browser and create a brand new team project, and in 1 minute it’s ready and you can connect to it. I use it even for 1-person projects, because I believe in this online service more than an SVN installed onto my own computer. So I think the message below is quite correct. Mosolygó arc
