Hello!,

Can we accept user input in Archi console when we run a script?

Nashorn readLine() function seems to not be working:

Script Error: javax.script.ScriptException: ReferenceError: "readline" is not defined in file:/D:/projects/archi-script/scripts/restclient.ajs at line number 61
Script Error: javax.script.ScriptException: ReferenceError: "readLine" is not defined in file:/D:/projects/archi-script/scripts/restclient.ajs at line number 61

Also:
    console.log("Give user");
    var buffer = new java.io.BufferedReader(new java.io.InputStreamReader(java.lang.System.in));
    var uname = buffer.readLine();

throws:
    Script Error: java.lang.RuntimeException: java.io.IOException: The handle is invalid

Is there a way to get user to provide input at runtime?

Hi, the console is for output only.

Please take time to read through the wiki. This section concerns the console and user input:

Thank you!! hadn't seen this part.

Are there any other ways for input during run?

var name = window.prompt("Please enter your name", "Default Name");

I ask for checkboxes, comboboxes, etc.

Hi,

FWIW, I'm working on a small JS library to address this need. The goal is to make it easy to describe the dialog UI, then "run" it and get a data structure (JSON) as a result.

I'll share it as soon as possible, but don't expect something ready before one or two months.

Regards,

JB
