Use this:   var dialogReturnValue = app.execDialog(CustomDialog); if ("ok" == dialogReturnValue) {this.getField("textfield").value = CustomDialog.strName;} else if ("other"==dialogReturnValue) {this.getField("textfield").value = "0";}

The execDialog method returns the value selected, so you can do it like this:

 

if (app.execDialog(CustomDialog)=="ok") {

// do something

} else {

// do something else

}

You're missing a lot of code. For starters, you're not using the commit function of the dialog object to save the value the user entered to a variable. If you did that you could then apply it to a field when "ok" is clicked.

Hi, I managed to get things working just having few more issue,

I got ok button to work but i'm having problem with (other_button) called "Reset"

 this is codes I used

 

commit: function(dialog)
   {
      var data = dialog.store();
      this.strName = data["usnm"];
   },
   other: function(dialog){
   dialog.end();

 

this make "Reset" to close Dialog box now I need  also to write "0" to textfield

this is what I used

 

CustomDialog.strName = this.getField("textfield").value;
if("ok" == app.execDialog(CustomDialog))
{
    this.getField("textfield").value = CustomDialog.strName;
}else{
this.getField("textfield").value = "0";
}

 

 This write 0 to textfield but it also write 0 even if I press cancel. What do I need to add to specify "Reset" button only to write 0?

Use this:

 

var dialogReturnValue = app.execDialog(CustomDialog);

if ("ok" == dialogReturnValue) {
this.getField("textfield").value = CustomDialog.strName;
} else if ("other"==dialogReturnValue) {
this.getField("textfield").value = "0";
}
