Using dialog windows

When using the Webworks dialog window ( https://bdsc.webapps.blackberry.com/html5/apis/blackberry.ui.dialog.html ), we noticed that an opened dialog closes automatically, when the user does not interact with it for 30 seconds. We tried the standardAsk and customAsk dialogs and both closed automatically. However, we need the user to make a choice. Is it possible to keep a dialog open until the user makes a choice?

On a side note, we also tried testing standardAskAsync and customAskAsync to see if this could solve the problem, but these dialogs return the following error message when being opened: "Exception in TypeError: Result of expression 'blackberry.ui.dialog.standardAskAsync' [undefined] is not a function."

Re: Using dialog windows

What is the code snippet you are using to launch the dialog?


If you are on developing for smartphone StandardAskAsync and customAskAsync won't work, they are currently Tablet only, which would explain the error you got.
