Re: Re: Two Notebooks Open at the Same Time


By using DialogInput the assignment can be done in the main notebook:

ret=DialogInput[{TextCell["Enter a name: "],
  InputField[Dynamic[nm],String],
  DefaultButton[DialogReturn[nm]]}]

Or you can pass the proper context to the dialog notebook:

CreateDialog[{TextCell["Enter a name: "],
  InputField[Dynamic[nm],String],
  DefaultButton[DialogReturn[ret=nm]]},
    CellContext->Context[]]
