It's missing alot of things... The guide was made for Arma2 ages ago. I wrote it while I was teaching myself how to make dialogs... without any help. Needless to say, I myself have come a very long way. The guide will be re-wrote for A3 in any case. Sometime.
you the man Iceman77 , Ive been copying and pasting things off you for a long time...:yay:

ive been messing with gcam , typ of dialogs... I have more fun wasting the day messing with dialogs than making missions...

Does anyone have any information on how to define and use CT_CHECKBOX (77)? Related commands are cbChecked and cbSetChecked.

class RscCheckBox
{
idc = -1;
type = 77;
style = 0;
checked = 0;
x = "0.375 * safezoneW + safezoneX";
y = "0.36 * safezoneH + safezoneY";
w = "0.025 * safezoneW";
h = "0.04 * safezoneH";
color[] = {1,1,1,0.7};
colorFocused[] = {1,1,1,1};
colorHover[] = {1,1,1,1};
colorPressed[] = {1,1,1,1};
colorDisabled[] = {1,1,1,0.2};
colorBackground[] = {0,0,0,0};
colorBackgroundFocused[] = {0,0,0,0};
colorBackgroundHover[] = {0,0,0,0};
colorBackgroundPressed[] = {0,0,0,0};
colorBackgroundDisabled[] = {0,0,0,0};
textureChecked = "\A3\Ui_f\data\GUI\RscCommon\RscCheckBox\CheckBox_checked_ca.paa";
textureUnchecked = "\A3\Ui_f\data\GUI\RscCommon\RscCheckBox\CheckBox_unchecked_ca.paa";
textureFocusedChecked = "\A3\Ui_f\data\GUI\RscCommon\RscCheckBox\CheckBox_checked_ca.paa";
textureFocusedUnchecked = "\A3\Ui_f\data\GUI\RscCommon\RscCheckBox\CheckBox_unchecked_ca.paa";
textureHoverChecked = "\A3\Ui_f\data\GUI\RscCommon\RscCheckBox\CheckBox_checked_ca.paa";
textureHoverUnchecked = "\A3\Ui_f\data\GUI\RscCommon\RscCheckBox\CheckBox_unchecked_ca.paa";
texturePressedChecked = "\A3\Ui_f\data\GUI\RscCommon\RscCheckBox\CheckBox_checked_ca.paa";
texturePressedUnchecked = "\A3\Ui_f\data\GUI\RscCommon\RscCheckBox\CheckBox_unchecked_ca.paa";
textureDisabledChecked = "\A3\Ui_f\data\GUI\RscCommon\RscCheckBox\CheckBox_checked_ca.paa";
textureDisabledUnchecked = "\A3\Ui_f\data\GUI\RscCommon\RscCheckBox\CheckBox_unchecked_ca.paa";
tooltipColorText[] = {1,1,1,1};
tooltipColorBox[] = {1,1,1,1};
tooltipColorShade[] = {0,0,0,0.65};
soundEnter[] = {"",0.1,1};
soundPush[] = {"",0.1,1};
soundClick[] = {"",0.1,1};
soundEscape[] = {"",0.1,1};
};

I am also wondering if there is any way to change which element in a CT_TOOLBOX is selected, I could not find a matching command. Looking for a simple method to have three buttons on an interface where exactly one of them is selected at any time and I have the ability to restore a previously saved state via a script command.

The link to the tutorial .pdf in the original post is dead. Any chance you could re-upload it?

None of my RscText elements display how I've created them. But it looks perfect in the GUI editor. This is in Arma 3.

What it looks like in the editor: http://i.imgur.com/Y7ba0rA.jpg (Slider is invisible unless hovered over, but it's still there.)

What it looks like in-game: http://i.imgur.com/bQGaUnQ.jpg (Text is invisible, no background appears)

Except for the element that says "Time to Wait" which is supposed to display the number that the slider is on, I expect to see some text without the element backgrounds, but all I get are the element backgrounds and no text.

Also: It doesn't appear to have an effect on the created dialog, but in the editor each newly created element is on top of the last. Is there a way to change the layers they are on so certain elements are in front of others? Like the background should be in the background, not the foreground covering my buttons.

Not sure I get your issue. What does the resource code look like?

Sorry for the delay. Can you try to explain again what isn't working for you? That resource code seems to correspond with the screenshot you have provided, but I don't know exactly what you want to have changed.

ctrlSetText [20010, "texturen\test_ca.paa"]; 
ctrlShow [20010, true]; 

But i doesnt works

If i load the picture inside the definition, it works. But i need differnet pictures

Hi, you need to some small tweaks:

First, add the onLoad property to your display to set a uiNamespace variable that will contain the display object when the display has been loaded.

class Display_RANK
{
idd = 20010;
duration = 20;
fadeIn = 0;
fadeOut = 0;
onLoad = "uiNamespace setVariable ['myDisplay', _this select 0];";
class controls
{
	class DOF_RANK_Pic : DOF_RscPicture
	{
		idc = 20010;
		text = "";
		x = 0.785 * safezoneW + safezoneX;
		y = 0.015 * safezoneH + safezoneY;
		w = 0.044687 * safezoneW;
		h = 0.092 * safezoneH;
	};
};
};

Then use that display object stored in the uiNamespace variable "myDisplay" to fetch the control object for the picture control and use that with the ctrlSetText command.

1 cutRsc ["Display_RANK","PLAIN"];
((uiNamespace getVariable ["myDisplay", displayNull]) displayCtrl 20010) ctrlSetText "\a3\ui_f\data\map\Diary\signal_ca.paa";

The syntax for ctrlSetText that you were using is I believe only valid for dialogs. The above example however is valid for both displays and dialogs. Hope that helps.

Hey iceman! I am having problems with some things. When i launch my dialog i only see the cursor and my dialog is either invisible or doesnt exist. I used to get an error about something being replaced with the arma 3 font but not anymore. Any help would be great! Thanks!

I guess it would help if you would post both the dialog config as well as the code you use to call it.

This was a great Tutorial, But i do have one question if anyone could help me out. I can't seem to get the import to work (ArmA 2), Can anyone give me a hand and provide a example on how to import a dialog into the editor.

 

I tried CTRL + L with the dialog on my clipboard with no effect. And i tried CTRL + I but i'm not sure how the config path works.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Edit: I just realized this was a old topic. (Misread it as March 2016)
