NAME

	AslRequest -- get input from user using an ASL requester. (V36)
AslRequestTags -- varargs stub for AslRequest(). (V36)

SYNOPSIS

	result = AslRequest(requester,tags);
D0 A0 A1
BOOL AslRequest(APTR,struct TagItem *);
result = AslRequestTags(requester,firstTag,...);
BOOL AslRequestTags(APTR,Tag,...);

FUNCTION

	Prompts the user for input, based on the specific type of
requester and modifying tags. The actions and results
are specific to the type of requester, but in general the action is
to open a requesting window prompting the user for a specific input.
If the user cancels or the system aborts the request, FALSE
is returned, otherwise the requester's data structure reflects the
user input.
Note that tag values stay in effect for each use of the
requester until they are cleared or modified by passing the
same tag with a new value.

INPUTS

	requester - requester structure allocated with AllocAslRequest(). If
this parameter is NULL, this function will always return
FALSE with a dos.library/IoErr() result of
ERROR_NO_FREE_STORE.
tags - pointer to an optional tag list which may be used to
control features of the requester.

TAGS

	Tags for use with the file requester:
ASLFR_Window (struct Window *) - Parent window of requester. If no
ASLFR_Screen tag is specified, the window structure
is used to determine on which screen to open the
requesting window. (V36)
ASLFR_PubScreenName (STRPTR) - Name of a public screen to open on.
This overrides the screen used by ASLFR_Window. (V38)
ASLFR_Screen (struct Screen *) - Screen on which to open the requester.
This overrides the screen used by ASLFR_Window or by
ASLFR_PubScreenName. (V38)
ASLFR_PrivateIDCMP (BOOL) - When set to TRUE, this tells ASL to
allocate a new IDCMP port for the requesting window.
If not specified or set to FALSE, and if ASLFR_Window
is provided, the requesting window will share
ASLFR_Window's IDCMP port. (V38)
ASLFR_IntuiMsgFunc (struct Hook *) - A function to call whenever an
unknown Intuition message arrives at the message port
being used by the requesting window. The function
receives the following parameters:
A0 - (struct Hook *)
A1 - (struct IntuiMessage *)
A2 - (struct FileRequester *)
(V38)
ASLFR_SleepWindow (BOOL) - When set to TRUE, this tag will cause the
window specified by ASLFR_Window to be "put to
sleep". That is, a busy pointer will be displayed in
the parent window, and no gadget or menu activity will
be allowed. This is done by opening an invisible
Intuition Requester in the parent window. (V38)
ASLFR_UserData (APTR) - A 32-bit value that is simply copied in the
fr_UserData field of the requester structure. (V38)
ASLFR_TextAttr (struct TextAttr *) - Font to be used for the requesting
window's gadgets and menus. If this tag is not provided
or its value is NULL, the default font of the screen
on which the requesting window opens will be used.
This font must already be in memory as ASL calls
OpenFont() and not OpenDiskFont(). As of V38, the font
used in the file requester's file list must be
monospaced. If the font provided with this tag is
not monospaced, then the file list will use the current
system default font as chosen in preferences. (V38)
ASLFR_Locale (struct Locale *) - Locale to use for the requesting
window. This determines the language used for the
requester's gadgets and menus. If this tag is not
provided or its value is NULL, the system's current
default locale will be used. As of V38, items such as
the date format always uses the system default locale.
(V38)
ASLFR_TitleText (STRPTR) - Title to use for the requesting window.
Default is no title. (V36)
ASLFR_PositiveText (STRPTR) - Label of the positive gadget in the
requester. English default is "OK". Prior to V38, this
string could not be longer than 6 characters. (V36)

encountered. If the function returns TRUE, the file is
included in the file list, otherwise it is rejected
and not displayed. The function receives the following
parameters:
A0 - (struct Hook *)

DIPF_IS_WB. (V38)
ASLSM_PropertyMask (ULONG) - A mask to apply to ASLSM_PropertyFlags
to determine which bits to consider. The use of these
two values is identical in concept to how Exec uses
the two flag paraneters in exec.library/SetSignal().

ASLSM_PropertyFlags tag interact:
if ((displayInfo.PropertyFlags & propertyMask) ==
(propertyFlags & propertyMask))
{

}
else
{
/* Mode rejected */
}

the user choose from. This is a list of DisplayNode
nodes, see <libraries/asl.h> for the definition. (V38)
ASLSM_PopToFront (BOOL) -- If set to TRUE, this tells ASL to
bring the screen to the front the requester has opened on.
The position of the screen will be adjusted, too, to bring
the area into view the window has opened in. The screen
brought to the front will be pushed into the background
again when the requester window closes.
Default is TRUE. (V44)
ASLSM_Activate (BOOL) -- If set to TRUE, the requester window
will open in active state.
Default is TRUE. (V45)

RESULT

	result - FALSE if the user cancelled the requester or if something
prevented the requester from opening. If TRUE, values in the
requester structure will be set depending on the particular
type of requester.
Under V38, If the return value is FALSE, you can look
at the result from the dos.library/IoErr() function to
determine whether the requester was cancelled or simply
failed to open. If dos.library/IoErr() returns 0, then the
requester was cancelled, any other value indicates a failure
to open. Current possible failure codes are
ERROR_NO_FREE_STORE which indicates there was not enough
memory, and ERROR_NO_MORE_ENTRIES which indicates no modes
were available for display in the screen mode requester
(usually because the application filter hook filtered them
all away)

WARNING

	All ASL requester data structures are READ-ONLY and can only be
modified by using tags!
You must not specify requester options by using both pre-V38
tags like ASLFR_Flags1 and V38 tags like ASLFR_DoSaveMode as
this can lead to unexpected results.
Take care when attaching an ASL requester to a simple refresh
window or a window that already shares its IDCMP with other
windows. In such cases you must ask for the ASL requester to
allocate a private IDCMP (with the ASLFR_PrivateIDCMP,
ASLFO_PrivateIDCMP and ASLSM_PrivateIDCMP tags) or your window
will lose IDCMP_REFRESHWINDOW events and other messages.

BUGS

	Under V38 and V39, the filtering functions for the file requester
were only asked to filter drawer selections if the ASLFR_FilterDrawers
tag was set to TRUE. The compatible behavior, reestablished in V40,
is to always pass drawers for filtering.

NOTES

	As of V38-V40 the ASL requester uses gadtools.library routines to
create and maintain its user interface. Every IntuiMessage the library
passes through the functions specified with ASLSM_IntuiMsgFunc and
ASLSM_HookFunc will have been filtered through the
gadtools.library/GT_GetIMsg() routine.
