jbryer / varEntryDialog.r
Created Aug 13, 2012
Function to create a tcl/tk dialog box for a user to enter variable values.
View varEntryDialog.r
#' Creates a dialog box using tcl/tk to get input from the user.
#' This function will create a tcl/tk dialog box to get user input. It has been
#' written to be extensible so the R programmer can easily create a dialog with
#' any number of varaibles with custom labels and data conversion of the user
#' entered data. The function will return a list where the element names are
#' \code{vars} and the value is the user input. By default, all entry will be
#' converted using the \code{as.character} function. However, this can easily be
#' altered using the \code{fun} parameter. For example, if integers are required,
#' use \code{fun=c(as.integer, ...)}. It is also possible to write custom
