how to implement a pop up dialog box in iOS

After a calculation, I want to display a pop up or alert box conveying a message to the user. Does anyone know where I can find more information about this?

Thanks

Answer

Yup, a UIAlertView is probably what you're looking for. Here's an example:

UIAlertView *alert = [[UIAlertView alloc] initWithTitle:@"No network connection" 
                                                message:@"You must be connected to the internet to use this app." 
                                               delegate:nil 
                                      cancelButtonTitle:@"OK"
                                      otherButtonTitles:nil];
[alert show];
[alert release];

If you want to do something more fancy, say display a custom UI in your UIAlertView, you can subclass UIAlertView and put in custom UI components in the init method. If you want to respond to a button press after a UIAlertView appears, you can set the delegate above and implement the - (void)alertView:(UIAlertView *)alertView clickedButtonAtIndex:(NSInteger)buttonIndex method.

You might also want to look at the UIActionSheet.

Hope this helps!
