Hi guys, I'm playing with dialogs and trying to figure out some things. With a little searching on forum I ended up having this code in a script, the code kinda works but I can't get a couple things:
- How do I set the default value (selected option) of a combo box ? .SetLong doesn't seem to work
- Is It possible to hide/show gadgets (or disable/enable) upon the selected value in a combo box ?

This is the code:

import c4d
from c4d import gui
   #Welcome to the world of Python
   
  
  
def sweep_circle(rad) :
    print "Sweep circolare con raggio = ", rad
    return
  
def sweep_square(lato) :
    print "Sweep quadrata lato = ", lato
    return
  
class ExampleDlg(gui.GeDialog) :
   
       def CreateLayout(self) :
           #create the layout of the dialog
           self.GroupBegin(999, c4d.BFH_SCALEFIT, 2, 1)
           self.AddStaticText(1000, c4d.BFH_LEFT, name="Sezione")
           self.AddComboBox(1001, c4d.BFH_SCALEFIT)
           self.AddChild(1001,10011,"Circle")
           self.AddChild(1001,10012,"Square")
           self.AddStaticText(1002, c4d.BFH_LEFT, name="Radius")
           self.AddEditNumberArrows(1003, c4d.BFH_LEFT)
           self.AddStaticText(1006, c4d.BFH_LEFT, name="Edge Lenght")
           self.AddEditNumberArrows(1007, c4d.BFH_LEFT)
           self.AddButton(1004, c4d.BFH_SCALE, name="Close")
           self.AddButton(1005, c4d.BFH_SCALE, name="OK")
           self.GroupEnd()
           
           return True
   
       def InitValues(self) :
           #initiate the gadgets with values
           self.SetReal(1003, 10, min=0, step=0.1)
           self.SetReal(1007, 10, min=0, step=0.1)
           self.SetLong(1001, 1)
           return True
   
       def Command(self, id, msg) :
           #handle user input
           if id==1005:
               if self.GetLong(1001)==10011:
                    rad = self.GetReal(1003)
                    sweep_circle(rad)
                    self.Close()
               elif self.GetLong(1001)==10012:
                   lato = self.GetReal(1007)
                   sweep_square(lato)
                   self.Close()
               else:
                   print "Nessuna sezione"
                   gui.MessageDialog("Seleziona una sezione")               
           elif id==1004:
               self.Close()
           return True
   
   
dlg = ExampleDlg()
dlg.Open(c4d.DLG_TYPE_MODAL, defaultw=300, defaulth=50) # ASYNC = floating, MODAL = dialogo standard

What I want is to show Radius field only when Circle option is selected from the combo, and Edge Length only when Square is selected..don't really know if I can do it in a script. 
Any advice would be great ! thanks

self.AddChild(1001,10011,"Circle")
self.AddChild(1001,10012,"Square")

You add the child with 10011 and 10012 but you set the default value with 1 :

self.SetLong(1001, 1)

You should pass 10011 instead.

You can disable/enable gadgets with GeDialog.Enable().
It's also possible to build dynamic groups with this sequence:

GeDialog.LayoutFlushGroup(...) # Removes all gadgets from a group 
GeDialog.GroupBegin(...)
  
# Add gadgets
  
GeDialog.GroupEnd()
self.LayoutChanged(...)

Thank for you response Yannick!
For the combo default, Ok now I'm getting how this works 🙂

For GeDialog.Enable() I'm a little confused on where should I put it... inside CreateLayout, InitValues or Command ?

In both InitValues() (to set the initial state of gadgets) and Command() (to respond to the combo box selection changes) you should call a method of your own named like UpdateGadgets().
This method would enable or disable the gadgets depending on the combobox selection.

I finally managed to get a dialog...thanks for all the suggestions! 
I have now a dialog with custom 'Ok' and 'Cancel' buttons...but..is there a way to get the OK button pressed when Enter key is pressed on the keyboard ?

Thanks

With the SDK you can easily add 'OK' and 'Cancel' buttons to a dialog with GeDialog.AddDlgGroup():

self.AddDlgGroup(c4d.DLG_OK|c4d.DLG_CANCEL)

This method creates 'OK' and 'Cancel' buttons with IDC_OK and IDC_CANCEL identifiers respectively.

To sets the focus to 'OK' button use GeDialog.Activate():

self.Activate(c4d.IDC_OK)

Finally in Command() you can then filter the buttons:

if id==c4d.IDC_OK:
	print "OK was pressed"
elif id==c4d.IDC_CANCEL:
	print "Cancel was pressed"

Hi Yannick!
Thanks again for your help. 
This the result of my efforts so far: its a plug-in to sweep multiples splines at once with either circular or square profile..like QuickPipe with a twist 🙂 Surely the code can be improved, but seems to work..
