software OS4   software OS4 : ProAction - ARexx Host Based Language Agnostic GUIServer
   posted by broadblues on 27-Jul-2012 16:20:23 (2949 reads)
I'm pleased to announce the release of my new application,
ProAction!

It's purpose is to provide script authors with a mechanism for creating GUIs based on the Reaction / BOOPSI toolkit. (Hence the name, sorry bad pun )

Read more...


It uses an unique two way ARexx system, with the script sending commands to ProAction, and ProAction sending commands back to the script to reflect the user interaction with the GUI. As such it can be used via any scripting language that can send ARexx commands and supports creating an ARexx port, eg python using the arexx.so module, or ARexx (with rexxsupport.library).

The interface builds up the GUI with commands very similar to the underlying Intuition commands and uses a TagList based system. There are something in excess of 1500 tags defined in the system includes (not all GUI related) and ProAction will support as many as possible, but it's quite a big job!

Currently the tags for

window.class
gadget.class
image.class

layout.gadget
string.gadget
integer.gadget
button.gadget
checkbox.gadget

label.image

are supported.

Here's a GUI created with ProAction.

ProAction is in the upload queue at os4depot at the moment: http://os4depot.net.

In the mean time read the online docs: ProAction Docs

Hollywood can send Arexx commands and create Ports. Just for curiosity...could this be used with Hollywood.

Sound interesting anyway.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

This seems to be the logical successor of AWNPipe GUI... a GUI Editor could make this tool a "KillerApp", or at least very very very useful
