Hi,

Is there a way to cause a dialog box to pop up when a process is opened/started that allows you to enter a set of variables?
For example - there are 5 changing variables that I want to manually enter when I start a process

Cheers,
Rowan

    That's not possible, but you probably already know the concept of macros (if not, let me know).
    Instead of defining macros with the Set Macro operator, you can define them in one single place, the so called process context. There should be the corresponding "Context" view in the RapidMiner design perspective.
    Now by inspecting the process context, the user can easily see all configurable variables.

    Best regards,
    Marius

    Hello

    There's this old chestnut

    But I prefer the context view as well.

    regards

    awchisholm - pretty groovy script indeed. Thanks for that.
