How to have an input box

/images/smilies/blush.gif/images/smilies/blush.gif/images/smilies/blush.gif/images/smilies/blush.gif/images/smilies/blush.gif
I'm very ashamed to ask this question...

I'm not keen on GUI programming in progress...

I need the code to have a simple input box in Progress 9.1C

Can someone give me a common way to have a "simple" input box :

- returning a string

- with parametrable text and title

- 3 buttons : yes-no-cancel


Something as stupid as that....

| What is your name x|
--------------------------------------------
| Please enter your name |
| |
| -------------------------- |
| | John | |
| -------------------------- |
| |
| Yes No Cancel |
--------------------------------------------


Must be so simple do, I think... But I'm so bad that I can't do it...

mistake in input.w

I found a mistake in input.w, which appears for "radio-set" mode.
In 'init-window' procedure in "create radio-set" statement the line:
HEIGHT-PIXELS = 10 * num-entries(w-format,chr(10))
must be replaced with
HEIGHT-PIXELS = 10 * num-entries(w-format,",":U)

nose on your face

This seems soo straight forward to myself. All you need is a .w with a fill-in * how many fill-ins needed, eg 5. in your frame on the container source just define (or drop) some fill-in widgets. This is Noddy UI stuff.
