st: Re: A dialog box to perform simulations.

Dear Michael, True, I did not read carefully. Apologies. Now, I got it. I now know how to use di _request(). I will try to adapt it in my program. What are the built-in dialogs you mentionned? As I said I am neophyt, so I apologize if I sound somehow boring. Best regards. Amadou.

He pointed out the _request() option to the display command which takes user input and puts it into a macro. To address your larger question -- yes you can do what you want with dialog boxes -- creating an interactive system. Many of the built-in dialogs can do just that if you keep submitting different inputs.
