How to change background color of button in messagedialogue popup? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I did a search and found very little. The reason I ask is because my popup dialogues' buttons have now white text with almost white background. My users say they can't find the ok or close button.

  • You cannot directly control the MessageDialog's appearance. The colors will come from the background color set in your app's manifest. From Guidelines and checklist for message dialogs

    Message dialog backgrounds are always white. The primary colors of the app that owns the dialog are used for controls.
    If you want more control over the dialog then you will need to use a custom implementation rather than the system provided dialog. MessageDialogs should be used sparingly in any case as they are generally not the most user-friendly way to provide information. See Guidelines and checklist for message dialogs  and Adding message dialogs for examples of when to use MessageDialogs and when to use other methods.
