Dialog shouldn't be closed automatically when OK is pressed

  • Hello,

    my dialog accepts input in 2 TextFields. When the user presses OK, I check if the input in the TextFields is equal. If not the dialog shouldn't be closed. How can I do this?

    import QtQuick 2.3
    import QtQuick.Controls 1.3
    import QtQuick.Dialogs 1.2

    Dialog {
    id: dialogVirtualKeyboard
    standardButtons: StandardButton.Ok | StandardButton.Cancel

    MessageDialog {
        id: passwordMessage
        text: "Passwords must be equal!"
    onAccepted: {
        if (inputText.text != inputTextRepeat.text)
    TextField {
        id: inputText
        height: 25; width: parent.width
    TextField {
        id: inputTextRepeat
        height: 25; width: parent.width


    Any help is highly appreciated!


  • Have you tried calling open() from onAccepted? I don't know if that will work.

    It doesn't seem like a very friendly UI: the user clicks ok, and then nothing happens? How do they know what's wrong? You could open another dialog telling them what's wrong, and from that dialog, re-open the first dialog.

  • I just changed my source code according to your suggestion. When the texts are not equal I open a MessageDialog in onAccepted (but the original dialog is already closed) and when this is closed I open the original dialog again. But that's not what I want.

    The original dialog should stay open when the MessageDialog is shown. I can't believe that this isn't possible.

  • Did you try calling open() in onAccepted?

  • Yes I did. But I also have to open my MessageBox in onAccepted and then input is allowed in both dialogs at the same time.
