Show dialogs with variable text and up to 4 buttons
With the Dialog plug-in you can calculate the text and the buttons of your dialog box in a ScriptMaker Script. You can add data from fields and also change the labels of the buttons:
Show temporary flash dialogs
With Troi Dialog plug-in you can show a flash dialog that
will stay visible only for a fixed amount of time, for
example 4 seconds. Great to give extra instructions to a
user, without the user having to dismiss the dialog.
Let a user input text through a dialog
Show a dialog with up to fifteen input fields, where the user can type text or a password (no need for a special bullet font to be installed!), choose an item from a pop-up list or mark a checkbox. All input fields can be filled with pre-entered values and you can specify in which field the input dialog will start.
Show a password dialog
Lets users safely enter a username and password.
Show a progress dialog
For lengthy operations you can show a progress bar.
Show a list dialog
With Troi Dialog plug-in you can display a list dialog
box, from which the user can choose an item. Note that the
OK button is disabled until the user chooses an item. The
list dialog box is completely customizable, including setting icons.
You can even show your own icon!
Show a slideshow
With Troi Dialog Plug-in you can create a slideshow of images and movies.
Show a big input dialog
With Troi Dialog plug-in you can display a big input dialog box, in which the user can type (or edit) long pieces of text. You can specify how many characters the user needs to type before buttons are activated and also the maximum number of characters allowed. You can also prefill the text, set the size of the window, choose the title for the dialog and give it a standard icon or your own icon.
Have the results of the dialog put into fields without parsing
We've added functions to make it easier to put the data entered and the number of the button clicked by a user into separate fields: ready for further use!
Position the dialog box anywhere on the screen
You can state precisely where you want the dialog box to appear on the screen. The plug-in will make sure the dialog remains visible even if your coordinates are outside the screen's reach.
Set the text for the dialog title bar
Giving your solution that extra quality!
Add standard and custom icons to the dialog box
You can add one of the icons as shown below to the dialog box, or you can add your own icons.
Below are all functions of Troi Dialog Plug-in 6.5.1.
