What I would like to know is how you can call a program based on user input (either typing or selection from a menu). I know the Zaphod Beeblebrox guy did it with xLib in Lunar IDE. I'll look over the xLib documentation again, but if anyone can figure out a way, please post it! Thanks!
You mean like:
Lbl M ClrHome Menu("Choose a program","Prgm1",A,"Prgm2",B,"Prgm3",C Lbl A prgm(Program's Name Here) Goto M Lbl B prgm(Program's Name Here) Goto M Lbl C prgm(Program's Name Here) Goto M
? That creates a menu that runs programs…
I think he's talking about a working parallel to this:
Input Str1 expr("prgm"+Str1
It would definitely require Assembly to actualize something like that. xLIB will do it (see here for details), but it's also probably more than what is required – that is, someone (not I) might be able to make for you a smaller routine, just so that you don't have to retain the bulk of the functionality that you wouldn't be using. (If you are already using xLIB, then great – problem solved.)
I JUST did this. I did the same thing, but i used Toolbar, Title and Item, because i have various categories. And remember, when in doubt GOTO "the end".
