Dialog Prompt cancelling?

I'm developing a script through python. i'm trying crt.Dialog.Prompt and when I press cancel the script stays running... I want to be able to close the script so that way if i decided at the time of input ,to cancel and i want to run again, i don't need to go into the Menu > Stop script before relaunching.


Sample code:
DARinQuestion = crt.Dialog.Prompt("Enter " + alarmingaddress, "IP to Device", existingclipboard, False )

Hello bainkaboom,

Cancelling the prompt itself is not going to cancel the script unless you put in code to handle that situation.

As shown in the SecureCRT help topic Scripting / Script Objects Reference / Dialog Object:

If the user clicks OK, Prompt returns the entered string; whereas, if the user clicks Cancel, Prompt returns an empty string.
So you might code something similar to the example shown in the Help:

DARinQuestion = crt.Dialog.Prompt("Enter " + alarmingaddress, "IP to Device", existingclipboard, False )

if DARinQuestion == "":
    crt.Dialog.MessageBox("Connect to " + DARinQuestion)
