How To Use

The source code includes some examples, so you can take a qucik look before you
start coding, and thre are two part of this library as below

1. High Level API functions

Before start, you need to import api funcitons:

from vsgui.api import *


from vsgui.api import *

# information dialog

# warring dialog

# error dialog

# error dialog and terminate script

# notice dialog

Input Text

# input text
input_text(text, initial=None)

# input password



# ask user the anwser is yes or no
input_yesno(text, y=None, n=None):

# ask user select a or b
input_ab(text, a, b):

# ask user passowrd, and check it
check_passwd(wanted, count=3, text='', errmsg='wrong password, try again!')


# launch a progress bar and create a update function
update = progress('downloading files')

# update progress bar message ot 'md5sum checking' and progessive number to 90
update(90, 'md5sum checking')

2. Zenity Class

if api functions is not enough, you can use Zenity class direcly to get
more powerful feature.

from vsgui.zenity import Zenity
z = Zenity()

# same as executing 'zenity --file-selection --filename=a.txt'
