dialog

Simple cross-platform dialog API for go-lang

examples

ok := dialog.Message("%s", "Do you want to continue?").Title("Are you sure?").YesNo()

Creates a dialog box titled "Are you sure?", containing the message "Do you want to continue?", a "Yes" button and a "No" button. Returns true iff the dialog could be displayed and the user pressed the "Yes" button.

filename, err := dialog.File().Filter("Mp3 audio file", "mp3").Load()

Creates a file selection dialog allowing the user to select a .mp3 file. The absolute path of the file is returned, unless an error is encountered or the user cancels/closes the dialog. In the latter case, filename will be the empty string and err will equal dialog.Cancelled.

filename, err := dialog.File().Filter("XML files", "xml").Title("Export to XML").Save()

Asks the user for a filename to write data into. If the user selects a file which already exists, an additional dialog is spawned to confirm they want to overwrite the existing file.

directory, err := dialog.Directory().Title("Load images").Browse()

Asks the user for a directory.

  • Linux: uses Gtk's MessageDialog/FileChooserDialog (via package github.com/mattn/gtk)

Documentation

Overview

Package dialog provides a simple cross-platform common dialog API.

Eg. to prompt the user with a yes/no dialog:

if dialog.MsgDlg("%s", "Do you want to continue?").YesNo() {
    // user pressed Yes
}

The general usage pattern is to call one of the toplevel *Dlg functions which return a *Builder structure. From here you can optionally call configuration functions (eg. Title) to customise the dialog, before using a launcher function to run the dialog.

}

func File

func File() *FileBuilder

File initialises a FileBuilder using the default configuration.

func (*FileBuilder) Filter

func (b *FileBuilder) Filter(desc string, extensions ...string) *FileBuilder
Filter adds a category of files to the types allowed by the dialog. Multiple

calls to Filter are cumulative - any of the provided categories will be allowed. By default all files can be selected.

The special extension '*' allows all files to be selected when the Filter is active.

func (b *FileBuilder) SetStartDir(startDir string) *FileBuilder

SetStartDir specifies the initial directory of the dialog.

func (*FileBuilder) Title

func (b *FileBuilder) Title(title string) *FileBuilder

Title specifies the title to be used for the dialog.

type FileFilter
