I have two questions: Is there a windows port of yad and how can I show access keys in yad dialogs. Thx and keep up your work. Just want to say thanks for yad. I had used zenity but now I have moved to using yad.
I have an application that needs to display notifications via dialogs on-top and yad does the job really well. My problem is with multiple dialos. If I display one dialog, then moments later I display another, at the moment the first dialog is the only one visible on top the other one is hiding underneath.
I'd really like it that the latest dialog always get to the top. Any suggestions? I have this code below and i need when i press a button to run a function, to connect every button with a different function, how i can do it?

I have recently begun to explore the possibilities of the YAD y et a nother d ialog dialog tool. It seems to be the best tool relatively easy to learn and use for creating a user interface for a Linux script.
The scripts can be run directly, or accessed through the main script. To make it easier to find the examples, the main script shows buttons labelled after the topics below.
A GUI button is a widely-recognized metaphor for a physical push button as a tool to initiate an action. YAD includes options for creating and manipulating buttons on the dialog and as parts of forms. YAD provides several options for changing the appearance of the dialogs.
This topic will cover a growing subset of these options as I find uses for them. They might be useful as examples for using YAD in a larger context. I often invoke YAD with the options in an indexed array. It's nicer to look at an array than an extended line with escaped newlines.
I also use an array to collect common YAD options to facilitate a constant look among the YAD dialogs in an application. People familiar with other programming languages will be suprised by the syntax and mechanics of BASH arrays and variable expansions.
Besides having an introduction to the syntax differences with using BASH variables, this page will talk about the why BASH cannot save arrays in an environment variable and will present one successful method for saving and restoring BASH arrays variables.
BASH has reasonable, if unconventional, features for handling arrays. Unfortunately, BASH lacks features for easily passing arrays to and from other functions. Because it is sometimes useful to delegate the construction of an array to another function, I have worked out a few strategies for simulating a function returning an array. The IFS environment variable is a powerful tool for manipulating arrays. This guide presents some examples of how to take advantage of IFS.
I was making some bad assumptions about how BASH variables are scoped. This page talks about how BASH variables, created in one function, are visible to functions called by by the function in which the variables are created. This page also covers a BASH trap I fell into, having made a bad assumption about how an exit status value was set. BASH variables cannot hold a boolean value.
What does that mean? Look at an alternative construction using a nested function. As I began exploring the limits of YAD, I found the following documentation useful as a source of examples and explanations.
There are some commands whose purpose or effect is unclear. I'll add to this list as I encounter and learn about more of them. You can see what GTK3 icons are available on your system with a nifty utility. Install the package, then run the utility:. If you see an icon you would like to use, open a console window and locate the icon. For example, if you are browsing the Emotes category and like the face-cool icon, enter the following in a console window:. If --button arguments are included in the YAD call, the default dialog buttons will be replaced with the parameter-defined buttons.

Those are the two buttons you get if you don't include any button options in your YAD command, as here:. A more sensible choice of buttons for this particular dialog would be "Yes" and "No". You can get those buttons by specifying each with a "--button" option:. Want "Yes" to the left of "No"? The order of the buttons is determined by their order in the command:. You can also move the buttons around at the bottom of the dialog box. The choices for the "--buttons-layout" option are centeredgeendspread and startwith end being the default.
Here's center :. You can even have no buttons at all. This might be OK for a notification dialog, but you'd need to click on the window-closing "X" to close the dialog:. The "gtk-yes" and "gtk-no" instructions determine how the buttons are labelled. Here are more stock examples:. Restore history with set -H. Probably the most frequent use of YAD is in allowing the user to make a choice a date, a file, a colour, a text string etc and sending that choice to standard output.
Whether that happens or not depends on the exit status of the YAD command. YAD also exits this way if the user presses "Esc" on the keyboard or closes YAD by clicking on the window's "X", although in this case the exit status is YAD also does this if the user presses "Enter" on the keyboard.
Other exit status values can be assigned to buttons, to allow other actions in a shell script. For example, suppose you have the three browsers Chromium, Firefox and Dillo on your system. The following script will allow you to launch the selected browser or to open a new window in an existing session if that browser is already running.
Pressing "Enter" will cause YAD to exit in this case. YAD's "form" dialog allows you to do this in another way, by stacking buttons one on top of the other. The trick is to use the "FBTN" or "fbtn" field type:.
The dialog window remains open until YAD is closed manually. For this reason the "buttons-with-exit-status-in-a-script" strategy is better if you're using buttons alone for making a choice.

Data strings pass to command as an agrument. By default data just prints to stdout. Additional parameters in command line treats as minimum and maximum values and step value in that order.
All this values are optional. Default range is from 0 to with step 1. Output of command will be set as entry text. Any extra data specified in command line adds as an items of combo-box entry, except of numeric mode.

I can't get a YAD button to call a function in the same script. Is there a way to do this? My understanding is the if I use the following construction, pressing the button will call the command that follows the colon This example which works will open an instance of Firefox if a user clicks the Open Browser button:.
I have a script with several BASH functions. I'd like a button press to call one of the functions. It doesn't. The following is a simple script that, when run, demonstrates the disappointing behavior:. In the code above, button Date works as expected, calling the date command. Buttons Two and Exit work because I'm checking the exit value of the command and branching on its value. Sadly for mebutton One does nothing. While the above code suggests a workaround using the exit value, my real goal is to apply a successful answer to a form button that, as far as I can figure out so far, doesn't return an exit value.
You could: put your functions in a separate file and as the command, launch bash, source that file, and call the function. Here, I'm also restructuring your code to store the yad command in an array. This will make your script more robust:. Learn more. Can a YAD button invoke a function within a script? Ask Question. Asked 2 years ago.
