How do you get information from a dialog box?

10 posts in this topic

Posted

The scriptmaster dialog example allow you to have a dialog with dynamic buttons (Formatted Dialog with Dynamic Buttons), but in the example, it is unclear how to use the dialog to obtain user information as one can with Filemakers show custom dialog.

I want to use the dialog box and have the user enter a name and other information.

Is there any documentation anyone can point me to, on how to use this feature in the scriptmaster dialog.

Thanks

Abel

There's a line "return" or similar at the end . If you set a variable to call the ScriptMaster function, the result will be in the variable when the user has clicked the button in the dialogue.

This will not do what you want..

You need to research/ get some help with Swing Frames to get input boxes

Here is a simple single field entry box


// SwingInput ( message ; title ; type )

// 12_02_21 JR

// v1.0

// 'type' is 0 to 3 and controls the icon





import groovy.swing.SwingBuilder



type = type.toInteger()

if( type < 0 || type > 3){type = 0}

swing = new SwingBuilder()

swing.edt{

result = optionPane().showInputDialog(swing.frame(), message, title, type)

}



return result

Thank you for that.

I suppose you need to know groovy to use this, and I don't. I will take a look a other dialog plugins which are easier to use.

Here is me generated plugin code:


RegisterGroovy( "FormattedDialogWithDynamicButtons( message ; title ; option1 ; option2 )" ; "import groovy.swing.SwingBuilder¶

¶

SwingBuilder swing = new SwingBuilder()¶

def dialog = swing.optionPane(¶

  message:message,¶

  options:[option1, option2]¶

)¶

¶

dialog.createDialog(null, title).show()¶

return dialog.getValue()" )

At the last line it says return dialog.getvalue(). I don't know how to get that.

In the built-in function there is the get(lastmessagechoice), what is the equibalent of that in scriptmaster?

thanks :logik:

Once you have registered the function it is available under the external functions drop down

Set a variable to this function with its parameters and whatever is returned in the code will be placed in your variable

I think thats all in th documentation.....

Hi Thanks for replying.

Here is my script to display the dialog


FormattedDialogWithDynamicButtons( "HELLO" ; "REQUIRED INPUT" ; "YES" ; "NO" )

The dialog box displays correctly. How do I get the result of the button thatw as pressed?

Thanks in advance
