Gtkdialog Tutorial Manual

New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

Gtkdialog Tutorial Manual

Post#1 by don570 » 16 Oct 2013, 22:36

I wrote a manual to introduce Bash programmers to the power
of Gtkdialog GUI scripting. It's available for download.

gtkdialog:
http://www.tecmint.com/gtkdialog-create ... log-boxes/

Gtkdialog (or gtkdialog) is an open source nifty utility for creating and building GTK+ Interfaces and Dialog Boxes with the help of Linux shell scripts and using GTK library, as well as using an xml-like syntax, which makes easy to create interfaces using gtkdialog. It is much similar to most famous tool called Zenity, but it comes with some useful customizable features that enables you to easily create many widgets like vbox, hbox, button, frame, text, menu, and a lot more. ... and more.

Thanks Don. :)

Hello, everybody!

I Am trying to writing on gtkdialog simple application for automatically authorization on the government site.
This program after clicking on the user button is automatically opening web site http://government-site.org via Mozilla Firefox browser and automatically inserts login and password of chosen user.

I have the same application by me on AutoIt for Window$
AutoIt v3 is a freeware BASIC-like scripting language designed for automating the Windows GUI and general scripting.
But I don't have idea how to add two actions (for four buttons):

1) for automatic insertion of user (visible_user_field) and password (visible_password_field) to the two fields of this html page

Code: Select all

<input id="visible_user_field" style="width: 100%" name="userName" tabindex="1" autocomplete="off" type="text">
<input id="visible_password_field" style="width: 100%" name="password" tabindex="2" autocomplete="off" type="password"> 
2) plus automatic pressing 'Enter' button of keyboard after 1st action or automatic pressing the button "Вход в систему"[/color]

Code: Select all

<input name="loginButton" id="loginButton" value="Вход в систему" onclick="OnClick()" type="button"> 
Вход в систему it's Sign in
Пользователь it's User
Пароль it's Password
source of gtkdialog (example)

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash 
GTKDIALOG=gtkdialog 
export MAIN_DIALOG=' 
<window title="Title of app" icon-name="gtk-about" resizable="true" width-request="350" height-request="170">

</button>

<button>
<label>User 3</label>
<action>exec firefox http://government-site.org</action>

<button>
<label>User 4</label>
<action>exec firefox http://government-site.org</action>
