    Default Need an opinion from the Xdialog Gurus

    I have found a programming aproach to do embedded Xdialogs that I think would save me a lot of trouble and time. I just want to get opinions on this, before I go on full scale.

    'This Xdialog creates an embedded dialog named "input". It uses script_play_local()
    'to call the embedded code in a script. This is easier to program and to organized
    'events. it also takes away the hundreds of lines of code that we would have if done
    'in one script.
    '*****************************
    screen=
    %screen%

    code=

    Hello Mario,

    My only thought is that you could use script_play_local() and dim your variables in name and house as local to stay away from global variables. There shouldn't be an issue with global variables as you 'regenerate' them everytime you play the script, but in general it is a good idea to use globals sparingly.
