Using Radio Menus and Other Inputs in JSFL?

Is it possible to use radio menus, drop-down select lists, and other types of GUI inputs for JSFL scripts? 

 

I noticed from this article these types of inputs can be accomplished using XMLUI, but so far I have not found complete documentation for XMLUI.

 

Is it even advisable to use XMLUI, or should I consider another route, like making Adobe Animate Extensions / Plugins for more advanced input possibilities?

 

Thank you greatly for your input on this, as I hope to share my Adobe Animate automation scripts in the future to help compensate for some of Adobe Animate's missing features.

Hi.

 

The official docs don't have a list/API of XMLUI controls as far as I can tell.

 

The most complete reference I've found is this one:

https://web.archive.org/web/20121223105042/http://photoshop-flash-coreldraw-seo-help.com/adobe-flash...

 

I think the options available may be good for most basic scenarios, but I think you will soon realize that they aren't really enough. So a custom extension will most likely be needed to cover all use cases, IMHO.

 

Regards,

JC

Thank you, JC!

That reference you shared certainly helps, and it appears XMLUI will work for what I currently need.

 

Here's a demo of what inputs I'm able to do with it so far for a "Swap Symbols For Multiple Keyframes" Script I'm making. 🙂
