UI Dialog Help

Recommended Posts

I imagine this is very simple but I find building ui's with python a bit tricky (compared, for example, to Maya which is very straight forward).

I want to create a simple window (or dialog or ui) with several text fields, float fields, int fields etc.

I have it working with hou.ui.readMultiInput, but you don't have much control in terms of layout/styling or what data types are allowed/expected.

What are the best functions for this kind of thing?

Hi Michael,

I had the same problem as you and I ended up using pyside2, but you might want to check out alex's huilib in this thread. His wrapper comes with an example script and it seems to work in 16, and seems great for simple ui's

cheers Craig

Thanks Craig,

I did come across that library and it does look nice so I'll probably end up using that, just a shame there's no standard functions for this kind of thing..
