[REBOL] Input timeout

From: mario::cassani::icl::com at: 11-Jul-2001 13:58

Hi all, is there any way to "timeout" an 'input or an 'ask statement? Is there, in /view, any way to do it with GUI input fields? In other words, something like: login: ask/delay "Enter your name or wait 10 seconds: " 5 "anonymous" If not possible isn't it a good idea to add this feature?
>> ? ask
USAGE: ASK question /hide /delay time default DESCRIPTION: Ask the user for input. ASK is a function value. ARGUMENTS: question -- Prompt to user (Type: series) REFINEMENTS: /hide -- mask input with * /delay -- give a maximum timeout and a default "input" time -- (Type: number) default -- (Type: string) Best regards Mario Cassani
