Its posible to create a dialog (in coffee is posible?) that can stay like any other cinema window so we can keep using cinema having that window floating there ? ... all dialogs i saw in scripts examples they disable all until u close the dialog, so u can't keep using cinema while the dialog is opened 😞

Yes, this is possible. Non-modal dialogs are created with the GeDialog class.

Here is an example of a simple test dialog plugin.

  
// be sure to use a unique ID obtained from www.plugincafe.com  
var PLUGINID = 1000158;  
// be sure to use a unique ID obtained from www.plugincafe.com  
  
enum  
{  
  GADGET_BUTTON = 5000,  
  
  _dummy  
}  
  
// definition of my dialog class  
class MyDialog : GeDialog  
{  
  public:  
      MyDialog();  
  
      CreateLayout();  
      Command(id,msg);  
}  
  
MyDialog::MyDialog()  
{  
  super(PLUGINID);  
}  
  
MyDialog::CreateLayout()  
{  
  SetTitle("My Dialog");  
  
  AddGroupBeginV(0,BFH_SCALEFIT,1,"",0);  
  {  
      AddGroupBorderSpace(4,4,4,4);  
        
      AddStaticText(0,BFH_FIT,0,0,"just some random text",0);  
      AddButton(GADGET_BUTTON,BFH_FIT,0,0,"click me");  
  }  
  AddGroupEnd();  
  
  return TRUE;  
}  
  
MyDialog::Command(id,msg)  
{  
  switch (id)  
  {  
      case GADGET_BUTTON:  
          //button clicked, do something  
          break;  
  }  
}  
  
class MyMenuPlugin : MenuPlugin  
{  
  public:  
      MyMenuPlugin();  
  
      GetID();  
      GetName();  
      GetHelp();  
      Execute(doc);  
  
      RestoreLayout(secret);  
}  
  
MyMenuPlugin::MyMenuPlugin()  
{  
  super();  
}  
  
MyMenuPlugin::GetID()  
{  
  return PLUGINID;  
}  
  
MyMenuPlugin::GetName()  
{

  Register(MyMenuPlugin);  
}

I love you.  Just one last question about it:
How can i test this? I know it works making a .cof... but what if i want to test it inside script manager? instead of making a "plugin". So i can change parameter and test them without having to close and open cinema again each time (!?)  😞

It's not possible from within a script. You have to create a plugin.
