NAME

       zenity - display GTK+ dialogs

SYNOPSIS

       zenity [options]

DESCRIPTION

       zenity  is a program that will display GTK+ dialogs, and return (either
       in the return code, or on standard output) the users input. This allows
       you to present information, and ask for information from the user, from
       all manner of shell scripts.

       For example, zenity --question will return either 0 or 1, depending  on
       whether  the  user  pressed OK or Cancel. zenity --entry will output on
       standard output what the user typed into the text entry field.

       Comprehensive documentation is available in  the  GNOME  Help  Browser,
       under GNOME/Utilities.

ENVIRONMENT

       Normally, zenity detects the terminal window from which it was launched
       and  keeps  itself above that window.  This behavior can be disabled by
       unsetting the WINDOWID environment variable.

EXAMPLES

       Display a file selector with the title Select a  file  to  remove.  The
       file selected is returned on standard output.

              zenity  --title="Select a file to remove" --file-selection

       Display  a  text  entry  dialog with the title Select Host and the text
       Select the host you would like  to  flood-ping.  The  entered  text  is
       returned on standard output.

              zenity   --title  "Select  Host" --entry --text "Select the host
              you would like to flood-ping"

       Display a dialog, asking Microsoft Windows has been  found!  Would  you
       like  to remove it?. The return code will be 0 (true in shell) if OK is
       selected, and 1 (false) if Cancel is selected.

              zenity  --question --title "Alert"   --text  "Microsoft  Windows
              has been found! Would you like to remove it?"
