[Seaside] SU Lightbox and GLORP

Good point. I'll use #confirm:.

However, I think I've discovered the reason I can't get it to work...

This works (not using lightbox):

confirm: aString
    ^ self call: (WAYesOrNoDialog new addMessage: aString)

remove: item
    (self confirm: 'Are you SURE?') ifTrue: [Transcript cr; show: 'RKE: 

Now if I change the #call: to #lightbox:, I now get the dialog in a 
lightbox. Great.

However, I now get *two* returns from #lightbox:. The first when the dialog 
displayed. The second after I've clicked on Yes or No.

The first return is the self object. The second return is from whatever is 
from the Yes or No buttons. I am absolutely certain you guys can replicate 
Try it.

(Inserting #yourself in '(WAYesOrNoDialog new addMessage: aString)'
makes no difference.)

Now this makes it damn difficult for me to workaround. Why are there two

I think he was wondering why you're checking #inform: for a return value, it
has none, while #confirm: returns a boolean.  He might not have noticed your
earlier custom implementation of #inform:, though you probably should have
overridden #confirm: instead if you expect the user to choose yes or no.
