Alert without an X?

By john.a.wills ·
Is it possible to have in Oracle Forms an Alert without the X in the top right-hand corner? My client needs this because she is afraid that her underlings may click the X, with unpredictable consequences (well, I can predict them, but they are not written in the Alert), instead of one of the buttons, which have well-defined consequences.

If this is a standard Jquery dialog box, you can hide the dialog title bar

closeOnEscape: false,
open: function(event, ui) { $(".ui-dialog-titlebar-close", ui.dialog || ui).hide(); }

Forms Alerts are not JQuery dialog boxes,

by john.a.wills In reply to Alert without an X?

at least so far as I know. They are not html things, although they may get started from a web page. An Alert is an object within an Oracle Form. The object has its properties defined at compile time, and they can be changed at run time, but I do not see in the properties palette a property which looks like turning on/off the X. Writing in JavaScript is something I am unfamiliar with, although I write quite a lot of PL/SQL both in Oracle Forms and in packages for web pages. So, robo_dev, thank you but I don't think you've hit on it.
