The major API functionalities
Please view the detailed API documentation in the
API reference of this package (sidebar at the right of this page). The following provides an API overview.
For convenience and ease-of-use, employ the following asynchroneous functions.
Info.show(..)- display a message.
Info.confirm(..)- confirm a message (optionally with multiple confirm buttons).
Info.get(..)- get the user's input from the text entry fields, combo boxes, radio or check buttons present in the dialog displayed by this method.
Info.get2D(..)- similar to Info.get(), however the displayed dialog provides two columns for the user to enter data.
These methods display a dialog and return a
Future of type
UserInput, containing everything the user entered into the dialog, including which buttons were pressed.
For additional flexibility, dialogs can be opened by using their respective constructors. Modal (blocking) and non-modal dialogs are supported. Constructors require a callback function invoked when a button is pressed.
A special dialog provides access to the operating system's file selection dialog:
Table, Icon Panel, Popup Menu
This package provides the following GUI elements in addition to dialogs :
BasicTable- display table data, and provide access to the data a user entered into the optional interactive elements of the table. A table must be embedded into a parent html element for display, e.g. into a dialog (demonstrated by the examples of this package), a user provided div, etc.
IconPanel- a rectangular grid of icons acting as buttons with assigned action functions,
PopupMenu- a popup menu with a list of menu items, acting as buttons with assigned action functions.
TableAttr contain style attribute names and their defaults for various screen sizes (PC, Tablet, Phone) and attribute setter methods for Dialogs and Tables, respectively. See also the example source files where style changes are demonstrated.
