Create with the right style bits

e.g.
SWT.OK | SWT.CANCEL
SWT.YES | SWT.NO
SWT.RETRY | SWT.ABORT | SWT.IGNORE

Veronika, thanks a lot for your reply.
That is what I do
MessageBox box = new MessageBox(getView().getViewSite().getShell(),
SWT.YES | SWT.NO | SWT.ICON_QUESTION);
when I open this box SWT.YES is a default button, that is if I press enter
YES-button will be selected, but I need NO to be selected by default.
I mean, I did the way you advised me to, but it did not help.

I guess I misunderstood your question.

No, there is no way to change the default button in MessageBox.

It's fairly easy to roll your own MessageBox styled implementation which looks exactly like MessageBox but can be configured to have whichever button(s) you want (and whichever you want defaulted). However, it won't be quite native on every platform unless you *really* do your homework and have a lot of conditional widget creation and layout logic. Still, it's possible and it might be your only solution. To get the platform specific question image, use Display#getSystemImage(SWT.ICON_QUESTION) There are quite a few other styles you can use - you get the idea. Hope this was helpful.

Perhaps this is something you can request for a future version.
Something like:

MessageBox box = new MessageBox(getView().getViewSite().getShell(),
SWT.YES | SWT.NO | SWT.ICON_QUESTION);
box.setDefaultButton(SWT.NO);

It wouldn't be a difficult implementation since a Shell already has the
capability.

Anyway, thanks a lot guys!
What if I inherit my own message box from the existing one and add just one
method. Will that do?

Not all platforms have native support for that kind of feature. MessageBox takes the Least-Common-Denominator approach in its features. Yes, some platforms support more (in some cases quite a bit more) than what MessageBox offers, but anything more wouldn't be portable.

MessageBox is implemented as a pure peering to the corresponding native dialogs. Shell#setDefaultButton(Button) doesn't apply since SWT doesn't actually have a reference to the native shell (on most platforms). And even if it did, SWT doesn't have a reference to the native button handle, so it can't make it default. Yes, there could be more features added later which would be done through emulation. Dialogs are simple enough and uniform enough that emulation probably wouldn't even be noticed (except by the very picky). If you think SWT should do something like that, file a feature request. But as I've mentioned before, you shouldn't have any trouble emulating the same features.

You will not be able to get a handle to the buttons in any platform
independant way. MessageBox is not intended to be subclassed.

Oh, right. What a pity. Anyway, Veronika, thanks a lot for your support.
