What did you expect with that name? Zenity-wrapper is a ruby wrapper over the zenity utilily.
I wrote it because I need it for a personal project. It is far from complete, it could only open list and message dialog boxes. Anyway I release it because it could be helpfull to somebody.
gem install zenity-wrapper apt-get zenity
You should check zenity documentation first.
require 'zenity' Zenity::Message.new(:error, "content text").proceed
A big error message:
m = Zenity::Message.new(:error, "content text") m.title = "Big error message" m.width = 600 m.height = 400 m.proceed
Zenity defines the following module constants:
And the following methods for each dialogs classes:
A dumb usage example:
m = Zenity::Message.new(:question, "your question") answer = m.proceed if m.exit_status == Zenity::OK puts answer elsif m.expired? puts "too late..." end
proceed method returns a String.
list = List.new(columns = ["Reference", "Title"], data = ['1 "title 1"', '2 "title 2"']) # You could modify the separator list.separator = "---" # You could modify the returned column(s) list.print_column = "ALL" puts list.proceed
Message.new(:error, "This is an error message").proceed Message.new(:info, "This is an info message").proceed Message.new(:warning, "This is a warning message").proceed answer = Message.new(:question, "This is a question message").proceed puts answer
