Along with that, I'd like to suggest that when a dialog is closed, the ability to tap into the dialogs close event and keep the dialog from closing (much like we use halt/haltdef to keep text from displaying on screen for our own personal display options)

There have been situations where, on close, I'd want to hide the dialog instead of it closing. But halt/haltdef seem not to work and the dialog closes anyway.

Yeah it would be easier than hiding a dialog by moving it offscreen.

cant you just do a /dialog -m (-m is minimize, right?) mydialog to minimize it out of the way?

-m isn't minimize.. anyway, hiding isn't minimizing.. although it serves fine for many.

No, it has nothing to do with minimizing.
  • The /dialog command allows you to create a modeless dialog with the -m switch. This type of dialog doesn't halt or return a value to the calling script, and the dialog can be displayed indefinitely and used for many purposes.
