Create a Script for "Install ScriptUI Panel" without having 2 windows.

Hi all!

This may be a RTFM question, but I can´t find the correct way to use this function.

 

I made a script (copied below) and when I install it as Install ScriptUI Panel the result is 2 windows, as seen attached, one docable and one not. What am I doing wrong if I want to have only 1 window (the dockable one with the button inside it)

 

SCRIPT:

var panelRender = this;
var renderWindow = new Window("palette", "Tool", undefined);
var panelRender = renderWindow.add("panel", undefined, "QUEUE");
panelRender.orientation = "row";

var renderButton = panelRender.add("button", undefined, "OPEN APP");

renderButton.onClick = function() {
$.evalFile(File($.fileName).path + '/Tool_v001.jsx')
}

renderWindow.center();
renderWindow.show();

 

Thanks very much!
Nacho

Typically I'd do something like this. You need to check if AE is giving the script a panel (i.e. this) or not then either add to that panel or create a new window if it isn't running as a panel.

 

function main(thisObj) {

	var renderWindow;
	if (thisObj instanceof Panel) renderWindow = thisObj;
	else renderWindow =  new Window("palette", "Tool", undefined, {resizeable:true});

	// could also write it as
	//var renderWindow = (thisObj instanceof Panel) ? thisObj : new Window("palette", "Tool", und
