Winput

Description

This software presents the user a window for batch processing input. Winput offers an input window to get a user's input string for batch processing.
Winput supports multiline prompt text and automatic window sizing.Syntax:
Winput [TitleString] OutputString PromptString [InitialString] [Options] [ > File ]The OutputString (enclosed in double quote marks) must include the token $input, which will be replaced by the actual input string. To catch the input, the output must be redirected to a file.Example:
Winput "set name=$input" "Please enter your name" /upper > temp.batif not errorlevel 1 call temp.batThis will send a SET statement to the file temp.bat (or .cmd), and after you execute this BAT file, you will have the input string in the environmental variable %name%.You can produce and execute any other command this way, or you can simply write the input string to a file.Arguments:
1. TitleString if the optional first argument does not include the "$input" token, it is assumed to be the window title
2. OutputString must include the token "$input"; string will be sent to STDOUT
3. PromptString text message above input field; line feeds by caret character ("^")
4. InitialString for the input field (optional)Options:
1. /upper case
2. /lower case
3. /num only numbers (0..9) allowed
4. /pass input will not be visible (that's all!)
5. /length:n max input length (characters); example: /length:15
6. /timeout:n timeout after n seconds, returning the initial string. Note: the timer will be cancelled on any input or window resizing.
7. /OEM the output will be transformed to OEM (DOS) characters. Note that the command line is assumed OEM, if extended chars are used; pls. use appropriate editor.For options with a value the colon is mandatory. No space within an option!Keyboard: Enter or Escape acceptedErrorlevel:
0: OK button was clicked (though the string may be empty)
1: Cancel or window closed without action
255: Syntax error (message box)Notes: The string parameters must be enclosed in double quote marks. If you need double quote marks inside the PromptString or OutputString, use two single quote marks (''), which will be replaced.Case ignored for the options and the $input token. All parameters and options must be separated by blank space (no commas!).The output string comes without terminating CR+LF, however, you can use the caret character (^) to append or insert CRLF.Another example:
Winput "md ''$input''" "New directory name:" /oem > temp.bat
if not errorlevel 1 call temp.bat
