inputbox in NXopen , python


HI all, 


for my tool in NXOpen i need an inputbox , so the user can give in some values for variables.

I found how to do a messagebox;

  NXOpen.UI.GetUI().NXMessageBox.Show("Test Code", NXOpen.NXMessageBox.DialogType.Information, "hello world")


But i can't find the command line for a inputbox


thanks in advance

There are some truly ancient "UF" namespace calls (uc1600 - uc1653).

But most times now people would create a GUI (Block Styler or other) for this.

There may be calls I'm missing

.NET languages have the NXOpenUI.NXInputBox() class


In Python, you can use NXOpen.UF.Ui.GetInput[Integers/Numbers/Doules], which are wrappers for some of the uc16xx methods that @Ken_A mentions, or you can use non-NX packages such as Tk.
