app.alert for custom dialog box

I have fieldA  and button with custom dialog box.

How would I incorporate app.alert into dialog box so it stops dialog box to pop if value in fieldA is less then 5?

I know how to make code for app.alert:

if(this.getField("fieldA").value < 5){ app.alert("Need value of 5 or more");

I don't know how to put it inside dialog box so it stops it to execute.

Hi,

 

I am assuming you mean you want the dialog to show and no more code to be run. This can be achieved by using a if ... else

 

if ( this.getField("fieldA").value < 5) {
    app.alert ("Need value of 5 or more")
} else {
    //put code you want to run here when value is greated than 5
}

 Hope this helps

I don't want dialog to show if value in fieldA is less then 5, in that case I want only alert to show and no dialog when I press on button.

Hi,

 

In that case put the dialog code in the else section, would that not work?
