Subject Re: [IBO] TIB_Connection: error msg displayed upon cancel
Author Raymond Kennington
I can see your logic.

However, I saw a dialog box for logging on and I -cancelled- it because I changed my mind.

This is not an error and should not be flagged as such.

Since it is also the same at run-time, I will have to create a work-around for this poor
behaviour --- unless the author would like to correct it.

I doubt it would adhere to ISO standard 9241-11.
