I had mailed about this problem before, but maybe I made it too complicated for anyone to understand.

I have a MessageBox(). On clicking OK, I display a dialog box with BACK and NEXT buttons.

here, on clicking BACK, i show the MessageBox() again.
on clicking NEXT, i display an SdShowMsg().

My problem is that when I click NEXT or BACK, I want this dialog box to be cleared from the screen, and then show MessageBox() or SdShowMsg(). At present, the dialog box is NOT cleared from the screen.. and the MessageBox or the SdShowMsg is superimposed on the the dialog box.

What do I do for the dialog box to be cleared from the screen when I click NEXT or BACK??

Stefan answered.

try this before showing the dialog box.

If you call Disable( DIALOGCACHE); the dialogs will vanish from the screen when not needed anymore.
It may be helpful to call Enable( DIALOGCACHE); if you display many dialog boxes and the screen begins to flicker (because of removing the dialog boxes and displaying the next one).

@vishwa: Next time please check on your original topic instead of starting a new, duplicate post.
