Since i could not find a answer for my question i thought i would ask it here. I want to get a popup and fill in a question to ask to the current logged on user, and use that answer as a variable. So not simply Yes or No but a real answer that is different every time.
Use a vbscript for a prompt, and store the text the user enters into a text file.
After this step, use the 'Get Variable' command to read the content of the output text file.
Here's the script i use:
strInput = InputBox("Your question here", "Prompt window title here")
If strInput = False Then
WScript.Echo "You pressed cancel."
If Len(StrInput) = 0 Then
WScript.Echo "You did not enter anything."
Set myFSO = CreateObject("scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set WriteStuff = myFSO.OpenTextFile("output.txt", 8, True)
WScript.Echo "Thank you."
I hope this helps ;)
Cool solution but sadly this will not work on our Mac OS X 10.6.7 workstations.
maybe something similar to Krijn's code on a mac would be to use Python with tkinter
the pop-up windows are easy and python is standard build with every BSD based install.
"That's right, I called Mac BSD! :D "
Agreed, it's just basic scripting.
Should be easy to find out how it's done! ;)
