How do I create a multiple choice prompt?



I'm looking at the documentation about dialog boxes, prompts and toasts:




I'm looking to display a dialog box with a title and 4 buttons (no textboxes or predefined system settings or alerts), with 3 buttons (each performing a different action when pressed) and a cancel button which basically exits the prompt.


What is the best way to achieve this? It's not looking intuitive based on what I've seen in the docs.

Re: How do I create a multiple choice prompt?

it sounds like using a SystemDialog would be your best bet, if the default buttons don't suit your needs there is the option of a custom button, you can also set a buttonAreaLimit  which will stack the buttons accordingly so they don't overflow
