I have a pop up box that id like to have auto close after x ammount of time. Basically it waits for a response from me a yes or no option and id like it to take the no option after x ammount of time if no response from me.
I am not very good with dialog boxes and am amazed i got this far so would be gratefull if anyone could point me in the right direction.

depending what you want exactly
this will time out in 5 seconds
click yes it will echo $true
click no it will echo $false
let it time out it will echo $false
alias testinput {
var %input = $input(This is a test,yk5)
echo -a %input
}


This works the same but true and false are changed to yes no
alias testinput2 {
var %input = $input(This is a test,yk5)
if (%input == $true) { %input = yes }
if (%input == $false) { %input = no }
echo -a %input
}

put this into a remote file, it is a sample only

alias testinput {
var %input = $input(This is a test,yk5)
echo -a %input
}

type /testinput
if you do not click on yes or no, it will close in five seconds

$input(This is a test,yk5)
the red is text you type in
the blue is a button option (in this case yes or no)
the green part forces it to close after 5 seconds (you set the time yourself)

this will echo the value $true if you click yes
it will echo $false if you do not click anything and it times out
it will echo $false if you click no

type /help $input for more information


This works the same but true and false are changed to yes no

alias testinput2 {
var %input = $input(This is a test,yk5)
if (%input == $true) { %input = yes }
if (%input == $false) { %input = no }
echo -a %input
}

Note that the 'kn' switch in the $input identifier was added in mIRC version 6.17, so it won't work in earlier versions.

Ok thank you for the explanation on how it works but im still not sure its what im looking to do.

I have a dialog box ive created using certain parameters the dialog box is editable but already contains text there are is more than one editable box it then asks me a yes or no and i want it to auto close if i dont repond.
From what I can see $input is fine if all i want is yes or no or a single inout text but my dialog box has more information that i want to use.

Im using
dialog -tmdov %diname secure

There is editable information in it and i want to be able to use
on *:dialog:*:edit:*:{
etc


I appreciate your answers btw and thank you for taking the time to answer just unfortunatly not what im looking for though i have learned something anyway smile

Here's an example:

Code:
dialog input {
  title "Test"
  size -1 -1 116 39
  option dbu
  edit "", 1, 0 0 116 10, result
  button "Yes", 2, 1 26 37 12, ok
  button "No", 3, 40 26 37 12, cancel
  button "Maybe", 4, 79 26 37 12
}
on *:dialog:input:init:*: .timer 1 5 if ($dialog($dname)) dialog -c $dname
on *:dialog:input:sclick:4: noop $input(Maybe what?!,doq,Eh?!)

alias test echo -a $dialog(input,input)


/test

The above doesnt work unfortunately though it is more along the lines of what i want.

It doesnt auto close though for some reason that bit doesnt work.

-x close a dialog without triggering any events

I think -c is for @windows

-c closes the dialog and still triggers the close event, which is what we want...
