Exit stubborn dialog

105 Views, 4 Replies

How do I exit out of a poorly written dialog box that will not go away.
It's an add on off some freebie website that I've been using because of the
neat way it rearranges the menus. Now I'm paying.

Only thing that seems to work is cntrl>alt>delete. Anything I can do in
AutoCAD. Secret endcommand command. cntrl>alt>space>jklland9>dotheshimmy?

Thanks,

we can't tell you the secret endcommand. If we did, we would have to kill
you...

What does ESCAPE or CTRL-C do?

Can you TAB within the dialog box to get to the CANCEL?

ESCAPE, TAB or CTRL>C don't do anything but blink the dialog. I think that
the only choice in the dialog references the dialog so that you are in an
endless loop. I would tweek the nose of the guy who did this, but I'm sure
that he had his reasons..

When I end the app through ctrl>alt>delete it says that it is waiting for
input from me? So, I give it imput of several varieties and body
contortions and go on my way.

The main frustration is that I don't normally go for the key combination
that brings it up, but only hit it accidently. The file the command is in
is locked up in a .fas too. Can you decode those things?

Thanks guys,

You might first try whomever created the application, then
you might want to ask over in Customization (not a
programmer) and post what it is, ARX, LISP, VLISP, EXE,
VBA...
