  1. Hello. I'm having trouble figuring something out with a dialog that I am building. Hope someone here might be able to shed some light on what I am doing wrong Version Info: VWX 2021 SP2.1.1 R1 (Build 580007) (64Bit) on Win10 and MacOs Script: The script I am attaching here is a simplified version of my actual script that I am using this dialog in. The actual script's purpose is to present the user with a dialog that lets him choose a symbol folder from the document's resources (pulldown). This selection triggers the listbox to be populated with the names of all record formats that are connected with the symbols in the selected folder. The user can also check a box to include possible subfolders of the selected symbol folder. When the user changes his selection or checks/unchecks the subfolder option I first clear the listbox of old items before re-populating it with new items (record format names) based on the new user selection. So in total, the user selects a symbol folder (optionally incl. subfolders) and a record format which the script than uses to write a csv file that can be used to edit complex record entries for a multitude of symbols in Excel. This data edited in Excel can then be reimported to update the record formats of all symbol definitions in the selected symbol folder. To present my problem without any fat attached I have isolated the dialog and use dummy data from hardcoded lists for populating the dialog elements. Problems: 1. I have to call my clearListBox function 2 times to fully clear the listbox of previous items. I'm using vs.GetChoiceCount to get the current number of items in the listbox and then run a 'for' loop with vs.RemoveChoice to remove the items from the listbox. If I am running this only once (which I think should suffice) some old items remain in the listbox, which is the reason I am calling the function twice. (See event functions) 2. The second and bigger problem I have is that triggering the call of my clearListBox function causes Vectorworks to crash to Desktop on MacOs. On Win10 it works fine. (The crash on MacOs mostly happens on the second triggering of the event. So you can check the box to include subfolders but a following uncheck crashes vwx.) Attempts for solution so far: I suspected there might be a problem with the checkbox dialog component on MacOs that caused the crash to desktop. I therefore made another version of the dialog with radio buttons (yes / no) to see if the problem disappears. Sadly both attempts work only on Windows but crash Vectorworks on MacOs. I therefore think there must be something wrong with the way I am handling the clearing of the listbox but cant figure out what it is. Since my solution for clearing the listbox (see problem 1) by simply doing it twice is kinda hacky I also thought this might cause the problem but the amount of times I'm calling the function does not change anything about the crash on MacOs. Searched the interwebs and this forum for the problem without success. I would really appreciate you help.

  2. Hi All Apologies if I've missed something glaringly obvious (I've searched the forums and can't seem to find an answer) i'm wanting to create a dialog where the user can still interact with the OIP and the rest of VW whilst said dialog is open and running. Effectively I want a dialog window that is open and on top, but still allows users to interact with the rest of VW. I'm wondering if I might be able to accomplish this with SetLayoutOption() however for the life of me, I can't find a list of options and values I can pass to this command. Is there a convenient list of said options somewhere? Or can anyone suggest another way to accomplish this?
  3. I am working on a simple Dialog with a set of Radio Buttons - depending on the selection, the script will perform different sub-procedures. I can't find a VS command to get the selected Radio Button. Any suggestion? thanks in advance! Giovanni
