Webdialogs on PC created using .show() is always parent to the SU window and will stay on top. Like SU's toolwindows.

cheers for those Dan, it is a bit hard to navigate this forum, when your not quite sure what your looking for...
don't suppose you know a way of turning off
I know this dosen't work but I can't find any method of having the sound pause or stop when I turn off the video texture, which I can turn on and of at will.
I could change a new page and switch to another .mp3 (blank), but as an exercise I'm trying to avoid that as instead off pause, continue, need to start over to keep in sync...
I wanted to say that this is an AWESOME plugin!
Some functionality suggestions that (IMHO) would make your interface even more invaluable:
Add break point capability:
At break points, the pluging could add a popup before execution (behind the scenes, not in the viewable text field). The user would just press 'OK' to continue on.
Add Escape or Kill button:
The Escape would be an emergency breakout to stop execution if the user created an inf loop. Maybe force inserted into any loop conditions (again, behind the sceens).
Add Variable Watcher window:
This might be pretty hard, but then maybe not, but also a variable watcher window sharing the space with the results/error window. I could see this working by having pairs of fields. Type the variable name in one field and the program updates that fields pair with the in scope value.
Reduce Web Console's realestate during execution:
Have the option to hide, minimize or make the Web Console transparent during code execution.
Just some suggestions, though I'm sure you are busy doing things that actually make you money so you can pay for internet access (oh, and I guess eat and have a place to sleep too... )
This needs to be broken off into a new thread. It's far removed from the WebConsole/RubyEditor discussion.
(and sorry.. John, I don't mess with sound in Sketchup or WebDialogs. My only suggestion would be to embed a media player of some kind in the webpage. Check up on the html OBJECT tag. [EMBED and APPLET are deprecated.])
Here's yet another plugin related to this from 2006.
The introspection aspect is interesting but it seems to have some problems with XP.

I discovered a strange behavior with my (danish)keyboard. When I want to
make brackets [ ], it opens a small textarea inside the console.
The textareabox appears when I push the AltGr key. When I enter numbers
and press Enter, it submits it at the top op the console???
anyone seen that too?
Just updated to version 2.0.
Author of "Architectural Design with SketchUp":
Alex (or anyone as a matter of fact): excuse my utter ignorance but how do I launch this plugin at all?
it's under Window >> Ruby Code Editor, not Plugins
make sure it's 'checked' as an extension in prefs if not showing up
Holy crap! I did not even think of that location. Thanks a bunch!
(And of course, to Alex for the plugin)
