Custom Buttons for System Dialog in C++

I've been able to create a simple system dialog with two buttons -> "yes" and "no". I followed the example code shown here. What code can I use to determine if "yes" or "no" is selected by the user?


SystemDialog *dialog = new SystemDialog("No", "Yes");
	dialog->setTitle("Age Verification");
	bool success = connect(dialog, SIGNAL(finished(bb::system::SystemUiResult::Type)), this, SLOT(onAgeVerify(bb::system::SystemUiResult::Type)));
	if (success) {
	} else {


void MyApp::onAgeVerify(bb::system::SystemUiResult::Type type)
	//if 'yes' is selected
	//unknown code

	//else if 'no' is selected
	//unknown code

SystemDialog (const QString &confirmLabel, const QString &cancelLabel, QObject *parent=0)

 So 'No' is confirmLabel and 'Yes' is cancelLabel.


if (type == SystemUIResult::ConfirmButtonSelection)
  qDebug() << "No\n";
else if (type == SystemUIResult::CancelButtonSelection)
  qDebug() << "Yes\n";

Take a look at SystemUIResult docs for a list of possible values:



Probably it's better to swap the labels around.
