Yes, it could speed up coding.

Vincent,

I followed your tip and installed the messagecomposer package.
But after installation I cannot find the component anywhere.
How do you use it when it's instaled in Lazarus?

Great addition, glad you pointed it out.

I did install the Messagedlg and I also found the the menu entry that allows access to it. But: what unit do you have to include for the compiler to recognize the Messagedlg (and Showmessage) functions? When I try to compile the compiler gags at these functions.

In Delphi it was "Dialogs" - is it not the same in Lazarus?

What does the compiler say? They're really there, see this.

Hi there,

I just discovered this. Wow! I did not even know it existed in Lazarus. I'm used to using GExperts in Delphi and I'm glad to know that after installing the package, a simple Ctrl+M launches it in Lazarus. It's a real time saver.

Great work guys!  :D

The compiler says: Error: identifier not found "Messagedlg"

I'm porting from Delphi 7. Could it be that it is looking at the Delphi 'Dialogs', I'm now realising.

No idea. If I put "Dialogs" to uses section then MessaageDlg works (and always worked).
Lazarus 2.1.0 r61214:62238 FPC 3.3.1 r40507 x86_64-linux-qt Chakra, Qt 4.8.7/5.13.2, Plasma 5.17.3
Lazarus 1.8.2 r57369 FPC 3.0.4 i386-win32-win32/win64 Wine 3.21

Try Eye-Candy Controls: https://sourceforge.net/projects/eccontrols/files/

Shouldn't matter, as the project won't search Delphi one (normally). Do you have LCL as dependency? What if you ctrl+click that 'dialogs' in uses clause? Does it open LCL dialogs unit?

The compiler says: Error: identifier not found "Messagedlg"

Is that a typo when you copied the error message or is that the actual error message?  Because I thought it should be MessageDlg not Messagedlg.
