MacScripter — the Web site and mag designed to show people how to use AppleScript — has released Dialog Studio 2.0.
Dialog Studio creates Dialog Director scripts using the familiar drag and drop interface with a compliment of tools to help in dialog creation. Users can create dialogs containing push buttons, text fields, checkboxes, radio buttons, gauges, boxes, and more, all without typing a single character of AppleScript code.
“This new version adds icon button and PICT tools, and the resource utility script Icon Imbedder has been incorporated into Dialog Studio with enhanced features,” according to Ray Barber of MacScripter. “The dialog and any item within it can now have their own individual font properties (font, size, and style). A script properties tab has been added to the properties palette for script variables and script type.”
Version 2.0 also online help for quick reference, and a layout grid, improved Live Script export, drag and drop text from preview, plus many more changes and fixes, he added. Other features include saving native Dialog Studio files for later editing and adjustment, four options of export: copy to clipboard, save as script, open compile and run in your favorite script editor, and a script preview. Snap to grid, nudge buttons, and step and repeat are also features.
