Create reusable jython-based SelectionDialog actor to collect runtime parameters
Dan (Higgins) did a prototype of this use of the PythonScript actor to create Swing interfaces for displaying drop down lists and then sending the selected value out on a port.
This will be a useful feature when workflows need to provide data-driven parameters (select date ranges or sites from a list of possible values).
The prototype SelectionDialog actor I have drafted so far includes the following ports:
"prompt" (message for prompt as a string)
output (the value selected)
