nsIPrompt

This is the prompt interface which can be used without knowledge of a parent window. The parentage is hidden by the GetInterface though which it is obtained.
Inherits from: nsISupports Last changed in Gecko 1.8 (Firefox 1.5 / Thunderbird 1.5 / SeaMonkey 1.0)

Note: This interface is identical to nsIPromptService but without the parent nsIDOMWindow parameter. To avoid redundancy, all methods here link to nsIPromptService. If you are using this interface, you must remove the nsIDOMWindow arguments from those methods.

Normally you would use the prompt service as it is more flexible, but sometimes a callback will request an nsIPrompt via nsIInterfaceRequestor.getInterface(). To get an instance, call the nsIWindowWatcher.getNewPrompter().
