Dialog box scripting....


I was curious, anyone have a nice way of creating a script that opens a dialog box? I'm in favor of the dialog boxes where you're given buttons, but I suppose radio buttons work as well. I'm just curious, because I'd like to know how to make a simple one for poweroff menus, without having to download and install other programs(so I can just keep it in my /home partition if I ever reformat, and it'll be safe.)

Edit: This is also supposed to run in X.

Well, you pretty much have to write a program using one of the gui libraries to pull that off.

Okay, I'm getting introduced to glade-2, but I'm running into troubles.

I have my gui all laid out how I want the buttons to look, etc. But beyond that, I'm lost. I've searched for some tutorials for basic dialoge boxes, but I can't really follow them, for some reason.

Here's my power-menu.glade file:
Code:

If anyone could help me out at all by linking each button with a command(Power off goes to halt -n, reboot goes to halt -r, cancel closes the program), it would be greatly appreciated.
