Good day to all of you once again!

I was just wondering what everyone out there is using as a dialog editor or if anyone has a dialog editor that they would be willing to part with so that I could compare a few of them (that work under OS/2 or eCS).

I am looking for copies of any dialog editors, including but not limited to Borland Resource Workshop, and Prominare Designer.

Let me know what you have available.

Hey Shad,

You'll want to check out OS2VOICE for a series on the free Dr Dialog. Just google "site:www.os2voice.org Dr Dialog". Good luck.

Hi folks,

yep - right. DrDialog comes with (or is rather based upon) its own dialog editor. It has some nice functions to align and group controls on a dialog and so on... although actually designed for the development environment that it is part of, it can be used to "only" create and save dialogs.
As I don't know other dialog editors, I can't tell how on it compares to others... but hey - that's what shadallark is planning to do, right?
Shad, if you decide to take a look at it, let me know if I can give you a quick start into how it works - I'ld be pleased to do so (I'm the author of the series of articles in case you didn't knew already).
- So: Looking forward to your comparison!

Greetings
Thomas

Ah, the pressure is on now to actually do the comparison and write the article. Do not expect it soon, but expect it before too long.

I now have the versions of Prominare and Dr. Dialog from Hobbes, and the Dialog Editor from the Resource kit (came with eCS), still looking for a few others if anyone has one that they like!

Hey Shad,

I forgot to mention the joys of the System Editor. All .DLG files are resources that you compile with your program. This is a tedious process, about as much fun as writing Presentation Manager programs in the assembly language (my apologies to the experts in Mexico who do so ... search google).

Nope had not seen that one at Hobbes, got it now though. Thanks. I hope to start working with each of them tomorrow (at least get them all installed).
