DialogSymbols

DialogSymbols

is an option for Dialog that gives a list of symbols whose values should be localized in the dialog.

Details

  • DialogSymbols:>{x,y,} specifies that x, y, should have local values for the duration of the dialog.
  • DialogSymbols:>{x=x0,} defines initial values for variables.
  • In addition to any symbols you specify, Dialog always uses local values for $Epilog, $Line, and $MessageList.
  • The DialogSymbols option sets up local values in a dialog in the same way that a Block enclosing the dialog would.

Examples

Basic Examples  (1)

The values x, a, and b are not defined outside the dialog since they were localized:
