I am trying to create a custom Dialogbox in python.

I would like to use getUiEvent when the onSelect() event is triggered listed..
I assume this would require it to know that it was a Button in order to use the getSelection() method.
The below code is hacking it in using globals... What is the correct way to do this?

loadModule('/System/UI Builder')

#Nasty global hack..
cb = None
cb_selected = False

def cdialog():
    createDialog("create()", "Title", None).open()
    print("Got here")
def onSelect():
    globals()['cb_selected'] = globals()['cb'].getSelection()
def create():    
    createLabel("Function:", "1/1");
    globals()['cb'] = createCheckBox("cb", cb_selected, "onSelect()", "1/2")

result = executeUI("cdialog()")

Hello Shane Lontis,

Creating a custom dialog box in Python can be a powerful way to enhance the user experience of your application. It sounds like you're working on implementing the onSelect() event for a button within your custom dialog. To achieve this in a more organized and structured manner, you can utilize object-oriented programming principles.

Here's a general outline of how you can approach this:

Create a Custom Dialog Class:
Define a class for your custom dialog box. This class should inherit from a suitable base class provided by your GUI framework (e.g., QDialog in PyQt or Dialog in Tkinter).

Initialize the Dialog:
In the constructor of your custom dialog class, you can set up the UI components including the button that you want to trigger the onSelect() event.

Connect the Button Signal:
Use the appropriate method to connect the button's signal (e.g., clicked signal in PyQt) to a slot or function that will handle the onSelect() event.
