I'm sorry, but this article is just as obtuse as the original request.

It still does not define, or even hint at, your objective. It is simply some unrelated rambling followed by a couple of quoted posts from this thread.

Can you just, simply, in a few sentences, state exactly what it is you want to accomplish?

Give an answer to the OP (who found this useful). You must have a question to evaluate the answer. I do not talk about making enchiladas.

Once again, talking in riddles.

I thought you *were* the OP, because you purported to summarize his request. Now that I traced back through the thread, I see that this is not the case.

Good luck with your quest.

Folks, how do you consider this helpful if there has been confusion and misunderstanding?
Okay I try that once, although we are more and more off-topic (this started on page 1, already) : What should I do differently to

1. avoid being confused with the OP of a topic and what has been the crucial bit of information which aroused this false impression?
2. respond to BW-userx request without risking to be criticized for having done so?

Where is the riddle, if you prefer? I got the statement, now point me at the mysterious part of my post or I have do say: You are not doing much better. This is off-topic, as I mentioned. I let you decide if an exchange of PMs is better.

You may have heard of or seen scripts that use Zenity and YAD, instead of Gtkdialog. Zenity and YAD are actually two programs that put all the Gtkdialog commands in simpler to use "wrappers." While you can use either of these wrapper programs, you will have finer control and more options by using Gtkdialog directly.
http://pclosmag.com/html/Issues/201404/page12.html


I think they don't even put "all" the gtkdialog commands into a simpler syntax, but a more restricted set of pre-programmed things.

Apparently for KDE3, with "kommander", you could create a GUI with a Visual-Basic-like interface, and it was somewhat "language-agnostic", you'd be able to use some generated file for that GUI with whatever script language you preferred. Or so I understood from descriptions I've read around. Kind of how one theoretically can "echo" an HTML from any language, I guess, only somewhat more indirect. But it has never been ported to KDE4.
