GetString System Query Command

GETSTRING AmigaOnly

Opens a dialog box with one text string control into which the user can type a string, and two buttons for exit button.

getstring [STRING default] [TITLE label] [POSBUTTON label] [NEGBUTTON label]

STRING/s The default string for the text control.

Default=blank.

TITLE/s The label for the text string control.

Max length=8. Default=blank.

POSBUTTON/s The label for the positive button.

Default=Ok.

NEGBUTTON/s The label for the negative button.

Default=Cancel.

Results:

If NEGBUTTON is chosen, RC is set to 10. If POSBUTTON is chosen, RC is set to 0 and returns the string to RESULT.

Notes:

Precede the character to underscore as a bound keyboard equivalent in the label name. For example, "_Done" would make "D" the keyboard shortcut for the "Done" button.

Examples:

'getstring string "Erase this." title "_Text" ยจ
posbutton "_Yes" negbutton "_No"'
userstring=RESULT
button=RC
