The Dialog Button displays a button on the user form that when clicked will launch a user form as a dialog.
The name of the dialog form to launch is set in the Dialog Name property. The value must equal the name given to a user form in the form navigation stage; for example:
A user form must exist that is not part of the main form navigation.
When the form control is applied the name entered will display as the caption for the form control. This can be changed by selecting the Text property.

The User Form launched by the Dialog Button is displayed differently in the client modules (Administrator, User, etc.) and when viewed in a browser.
This is to overcome the possibility of a browser blocking pop-ups.
When the Dialog Button launches a User Form from the Specification Explorer in DriveWorks Administrator, User, Autopilot or Live (client applications), the User Form will be displayed in front of the Form it was launched from.
A Close button will be active at the bottom of the Form.
Closing the Form (clicking Close) will return the user to the previous Form.
When the Dialog Button launches a User Form when displayed in a browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, etc.), the User Form will be displayed just as any other User Form.
If the Form uses Standard Navigation an OK button will be active in the Navigation area.
When Standard Navigation is not used, In Form Navigation should be implemented.
Closing the Form (clicking OK) will return the user to the previous Form.
A user form control that will launch a user form that has no navigation as a dialog.
