Blocking Prompter

The blocking_prompter exemplar allows you to display a GUI and wait for a response within the thread. It's great for one time question/answers. There are several built in varieties of prompt that allow you to do simple yes/no, options, or string test. You can add your own, just look at how the init code works and add your own gui components.

There are times when a blocking prompter does not work correctly. Mostly because it is run in a separate thread and some threading priorities may interfere. I'm not sure exactly when this happens, but basically the blocking prompter is locked and you can't do anything. Here is some code that gets around this issue. Thanks to Andy Meyers @ Sho-Me Power for allowing it to be posted… Concept from someone at GE…
