This tool allows the user to create a MapBasic dialog using the tools in the layout window. Once the tool is loaded, a new tool buttonpad appears. A menu named EasyDialog will appear under the Tools menu with the same commands as are in the buttonpad. Dialogs can also be loaded from an existing MapBasic file. Once EasyDialog.mbx is run, all files are closed and a blank layout window named EasyDialog1 is created. The printable area of the layout is the canvas on which the dialog will be drawn. The user is prompted to either add a new dialog frame or load a MapBasic file. Notes: - The layout alignment tools can be used to edit the position of the objects. - Each control has a different color so the control types can be determined without a label. - All of the configured settings are stored in a file named EasyDialog.ini and saved in the same directory in which the EasyDialog.mbx file is stored. - Compiled using MapBasic 7.5

This approach to linking data could help us shed light on phenomena such as the health impacts of climate change....
