Custome Dialog Box (Script Maker)

I noticed in Script Maker just now that I can make my own dialog boxes. There are not a whole lot of options but if I could do this it would save me a lot of work!

I know I can make a dialog box and have up to three buttons on it. What I don't know is if I can make each button go to a different Layout. If I could... oh, would that be awesome!

Version: v7.x

Platform: Mac OS X Panther

Sure, just like in FM6. After the Show dialog script step, check for which button using If tests & Get ( LastMessageChoice ) = 1 or 2 or 3, and have each If test do a Go to Layout.

Is this what you were asking?

something like that should work (i'm sure someone will have a more elegant way to go it)

if Get ( LastMessageChoice ) = 1

go to Layout <layoutname>

endif

if Get ( LastMessageChoice ) = 2

go to Layout <layoutname>

else

go to Layout <layoutname>

endif

by using the input fields section the user can input data directly into fields

This is all one script, I'll put each Script step on a separate line:

Show Custom Dialog[...

If [Get( LastMessageChoice ) = 1]

Go to Layout [foo]

Else If [Get( LastMessageChoice ) = 2]

Go to Layout [zoo]

Else If [Get( LastMessageChoice ) = 3]

Go to Layout [poo]

End If

In the first If test, Specify Calculations gets the: Get( LastMessageChoice ) = 1

In the Show Custom Dialog, the Specify buttons are for using a field's text for the dialog rather than typing in your own. Type in your own until you're used to how this works.

Clearer?

Thanks Aussie John -

Does that go into the Specify Calculations spot of the Dialog Setup or is this a seperate script all together?

This is a separate script ie put your "show custom dialog" before the items i indicated
