What is Dialog Director?

Dialog Director is a scripting addition that extends AppleScript and other OSA compatible languages on any computer running Mac OS 7 or later. It provides a rich set of features that allow you to create advanced and dynamic dialog boxes and floating windows directly from within your AppleScript scripts.  Dialog Director gives you the ability to extend & customise an application's user interface and to write applets, droplets & embedded scripts with the power to interact with your users in a fast, friendly, effective and professional manner.

Dialog Director also includes Resource Utilities v1.1b1 that resolves a couple of conflicts and adds the facility to access the resource forks of the current script and application and to keep a resource file in the access chain so that its resources are accessible to Dialog Director etc.
