I'm using XMetaL Version#:

What I want to do is to change the dialog box popping up when i'm trying to save a document that does not conform with the rule set (see picture below).
At first I thought this maybe could be change in a xft-file, but I couldn't find any xft-file related to this dialog box.
So after some more searching through the XMetaL files I located similar actions in some JavaScript files. 
Then I tried to locate the file JavaScript file which contain this information, so I could change the message and buttons.
But I couldn't find the correct file(s).

Do someone know where I could locate this file(s) to change the current dialog box?

I attached two pictures beneath, the original dialog box and one how I want to look(just to illustrate).


Kind regards,

I think this error message is hard coded in the Xmetal. You cannot change it. At least I cannot find it from the files which are provided with Xmetal.

Yes, this is in fact a built-in dialog that you cannot modify.

You can use the File_Save event macro (and maybe File_SaveAs) to change what happens during a save. See the topic "File operations" in the XMetaL Developer Programmers Guide.

If you are working with a CMS then check with the vendor that provides the connector for that CMS as this may affect their features.

ok, I see.
I'm making my own save macro.
