DrDialog is a very good tool to develop PM applications in REXX. You can use DrDialog to develop event driven REXX programs with PM GUI.
You can download DrDialog from the IBM Developer Connection Web page (see Internet - Web Pages). You've to register for guest access to do it, but don't worry - it's free.
Note: From time to time DrDialog is also available in the IBM BBS in Stuttgart Ehningen, the archive name is: DRDIALOG.* .
Warning: There seems to be problems using an older version of DrDialog or programs created with an older version of DrDialog under OS/2 WARP 4!
---------- * ----------
"There is a problem running DrDialog programs under Object REXX if they use DrsAide (as shipped) controls. Because Object REXX parses the entire file before running, many times syntax errors which would go undetected under "Classic" REXX are in fact detected. There is just such a syntax error in the DrsAide utility.
To fix the problem, open the DRSAIDE.RES file from the DrDialog File Menu option. Double-Click the ICONBUTTON (the only control visible other than the DIALOG). The DrRexx Code editor should appear with the ICONBUTTON section open. Click the "Drop-" tab and use the spin-button under the edit window to bring up the Class code. At the very end, on its own line, type END. Save the file. And now everything should work."
