The answer dialog is simply a stack in and of itself if I am not mistaken. I’m wondering if you couldn’t find that stack and clone it for your own purposes…

Here is another attempt to not reinvent the wheel:
We, like a lot of people, use:
answer [/iconType/]/prompt/[with/button1/[or/buttons/]] [titled/windowTitle/] [as sheet]
And we use the various iconTypes to who error, warning, or informational icons. We have a lot of these that are caution dialogs (are you sure that... sort of thing). We'd like to move to the (now) common UI convention of having a "Do not show this again." check box in the dialog combined with a set of saved preferences for whether the used indicated it should not be shown again. We already have a preferences system in place.
I am seeking if someone has already written code to ADD a "Do not ask this again." check box to the existing Answer Dialog, so you could do something like:
answer warning "Are you sure you want to quit before saving?" with "Save" or "Quit" titled "Are You Sure?"
put it into tResponse
put line x of the dalogData into tDontShowAgain
where a handler DontShowAgain creates and positions a check box in the existing Answer Dialog and adds a script to put the result in the dialogData (or some means to check it afterwards)
Alternatively, if no one has glued this onto the existing Answer Dialog has anyone created a custom Answer Dialog with a Do Not Show Again check box that has the same general capabilities (icon type by platform (Win/OSX), html text prompts, named buttons, and windowTitle as parameters)
