0008447: Feature Request: llDialog() to allow empty [] list

Currently the Opensim script engine will hang on an unfilled [] list field. In truth, there is no absolute necessity to include a list in llDialog(), nor need to place "" within the brackets. On Inworldz they allowed empty [] without causing a script error; the system just "filled in" the empty brackets.

It would be wonderful if the Opensim script engine were updated to allow empty list brackets in llDialog(). In my particular instance it would prevent me from having to manually alter literally hundreds of scripts and place "" within the []. There are a lot of scripts coming in from Inworldz, where both subroutines at the end of the code and an empty llDialog() [] list was allowed. If empty [] were to be allowed in Opensim scripting, I would bless you and your family and your pets, showering good thoughts upon you and great appreciation. : )

<cia-opensim> mantis 8447: empty buttons list in llDialog now shows Ok button

This is now as current spec and hope it helps

if so, me, my family and my cats thank your blessing, good thoughts and great appreciation

Well awesome. I'll have to download and (sigh) re-install the latest version. Easier than updating 700 scripts though! :D

Which version is this now operational in? Thanks.

Thank you! : )

As a note-- first link on the first link page results in "page not found".

And for those of us who aren't system coders, "building" code isn't our cuppa tea. Not everyone is a tech, uses Visual Studio, etc.

Is there a 'ready to install' version of this available? (.exe, .msi or .zip version?)
2019-01-11 07:48   
if you are talking about this , "git clone git://" [^] that is a git repository so no you can't open that in the web browser ..

But if you read the page, you find the link to the web version of it, [^]

And No if you don't desire to build your own then you have to wait for wherever you normally get it, and you are at their mercy.

Eeeps! ;)

Seems odd to me for someone to go to all that work modding... then not build an installable file. Much as I appreciate all the work, doesn't do the average user much good if we can't install it.
2019-01-11 10:00   
That is because the dev branch is just that DEV ...

Once osgrid decides to update it's build, then people who can't or don't want to compile will have access ...
2019-01-11 13:22   
Ah I understand. Thanks Ubit, Bill. Will look forward to the release. : )

@SnootsDwagon - as well as the OSGrid add on region precompiled version at [^] are some ready to run versions

1. Sim on a Stick ... up to 0.8.0 - not updated recently. [^]
2. Diva Distribution (D2) ... up to date as at stable release. [^]
3. Outworldz Dreamgrid ... up to [^]

I have blog posts with some experience and resource notes for these at [^] [^]

OSGrid is not usually far behind the latest dev master version @Snootsdwagon .. last version is on 26 Nov 2018 at the moment, but they usually get a precompiled version ready as soon as they are comfortable the recent developments are stable.
2019-01-11 14:16   
@aiaustin, he was looking for a compiled version with THIS fix in it ..
2019-01-11 14:29   
Got it.
2019-01-11 19:27   
Yup. I have items I managed to salvage from Inworldz before it collapsed. All of them contain the same short script, with an "OK" llDialog() (no need for list variables)... and there are 700+ of them. (They explain the jokes in the Hall of Funny on ElvenSong). So it's waiting for the new version or re-doing 700+ scripts. I'll wait for the new version. ;D

Sorry, but we do not make snapshots of dev code. They can be dangerus.
Dev git code, specially after a commit, is in early testing stage.

Osgrid and several more people do compile and run it in easy recoverable, test regions, providing fundamental feedback.
Osgrid does binary releases from that on regular basis.
They are pre configured for osg usage, but can be made generic by replacing all ini files with oriignal ones.

Our own release cycle is very slow, because we would like to do it after collecting somewhat large feedback, even from users like osgrid users.
but then we keep making changes... ;)
2019-01-12 07:28   
I understand. For me this is a major one, as it affects 700+ items in one of our most popular exhibits. Every script is inactive because the script language doesn't recognize an empty [] list in llDialog. Could change it by hand... but that is a lotta, lotta time involved. It affected scripting brought in from elsewhere on the last Fundraising Event too; we were constantly having to upgrade scripts because of this issue and the issue of subroutines being forced at the beginning rather than the end of the code (what was Cory Linden even thinking?).
Anyhow, still stands: would love to see this update on OSgrid. Thx. : )

The OSGrid folks updated today to latest dev master ... [^]

Woot! Thanks Aiaustin & all!
