So, I've used this for quite some time now, and even squawked about it here and there, but I think it deserves a proper Webfind post.
Display graphical dialogs from shell scripts or command line.
Yad (yet another dialog) is a fork of Zenity with many improvements, such as custom buttons, additional dialogs, pop-up menu in notification icon and more.
Downloads here: http://sourceforge.n...projects/yad-dialog/
Code for above example from the Wiki:
yad --title='Desktop entry editor' --text='Simple desktop entry editor' --form --field='Type:CB' --field='Name' --field='Generic name' --field='Comment' --field='Command:FL' --field='Icon' --field='In terminal:CHK' --field='Startup notify:CHK' 'Application!URI' 'Name' 'Generic name' 'This is the comment' '/usr/bin/yad' 'yad' FALSE TRUE
The Google code site has a lot of example code and a Wiki, whereas the Sourceforge site mainly hosts downloads.
It really is more than just a fork of Zenity, as it has enough flexibility to build basic to moderately-complex dialog-based GUIs for many common command-line functions. Most of the instructions are pretty intuitive, with a few things here and there that don't seem consistent ('--rest' to read arguments from a text file?) and prepare yourself for a little pain if you need to make something requiring a tray icon...
Other than that, it's truly great. My applause to Ananasik (Yad lead coder) and all those who have contributed.
from an Internet search for "Zenity alternative" or maybe "Autohotkey Linux", I don't remember
