string cancel = "No";
string ok = "Yes";

{
//StatusBar.WriteWarning("DEBUG - Rule: " + ruleName + " was triggered.");
// Ask if the action should be executed
SwissAddonFramework.UI.Dialogs.MessageBox.Buttons btnClick;
// The strings are defined in the parameters above. The default button is the cancel button
btnClick = SwissAddonFramework.UI.Dialogs.MessageBox.Show(askMessage, ok, cancel, SwissAddonFramework.UI.Dialogs.MessageBox.Buttons.Button2);
if (btnClick == SwissAddonFramework.UI.Dialogs.MessageBox.Buttons.Button2){
// User clicked on "NO" > end the process and return false to cancel the action
return false;
}
// return true and allow the currency to change
return true;
}
