Hi Wilhelm,

I couldn't access your FTP server, but I am also interested in  
constructing my own ask & answer dialogs as I need to create modal  
dialogs which time out, logging what has happened (like OkeyDokeyPro).  
What I am not sure about is how to get Rev to use my own dialogs  
instead of the usual ones. I would really prefer to be able to use the  
normal ask & answer commands with all their parameters, but I am afraid  
that I will have to write myAnswer & myAsk commands which go to my own  
dialogs instead.

Has anyone implemented their own dialogs in an application and if so,
