XUI questions...


XUI questions...

Hello to all...

I have a couple of questions about XUI dialogs, and can't seem to find the
answer in the programmer's guide.

First off: Are the dialog files supposed to have a .xml or .xui extension,
or does it matter? The help doesn't really address this, and the file
filters for opening an XUI allow you to filter for both. Just some
clarification from ATI would be nice.

Also: One issue I had with using the XUI with a separate ACL file. I found,
when using the doc_open(), window_create(), window_show() method of
displaying a XUI dialog, I found that to be able to make the dialog update
correctly (against the xui markup itself), I actually had to call two
window_create()s, one flagged as a XUI and one flagged as XML, and then do a
window_show for the dialog only. This was for a dialog that calls a
fucntion with a button press, and displays the new result in the dialog.
Did I do something incredibly wrong, or is this accepted practice?

"Reports that say something hasn't happened are always interesting to me,
because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we
know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there
are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns -- the
ones we don't know we don't know."
