    Trying to get an input box to work

    I want to have the user enter a name in an input box and then use that name

    This works, but I don't like the title at the top of the input box

    var entityname = prompt("Enter Name of Entity : ", "","Entity Name");


    This does not give me anything
    var entityname = inputbox('Please enter entity name','Entity Name','');


    This gives me an input box as I want it but the variable does nto seem to get set to anything
    var entityname = Lianja.execute("inputbox('Please enter entity name','Entity Name','')");

    Any ideas on how I can get this to work ?

    Thanks Barry,

    I knew it would be possible in Lianja.

    What is the best way to get a numeric value out of an input box. Right now all I can get is a character value even if I set my variable to numeric?

    Use parseInt()

    Code:
    var mynum = parseInt(Lianja.evaluate("inputbox('Please enter number','Number','')"));
    or

    Code:
    var mynum = parseInt(prompt('Please enter number','','Number'));
    Regards,

    Yvonne
