Purpose:Display the command dialogs

 

Format:TCDIALOG command

 

commandThe dialog for the command to execute

 

See also: Command Dialogs.

 

Usage:

 

Most of the file commands (i.e., COPY, DEL, DIR, MOVE, REN, etc.) have an associated dialog that will interactively build the command line for you, without requiring you to memorize switches and the order of options. You can invoke those dialogs with TCDIALOG, with the /= command line option, or with Alt-F1 at the command line.

 

If command does not have an associated dialog, TCDIALOG returns a usage error.

 

For example, to display the dialog for COPY:

 

tcdialog copy

 

 

clip0023

 

 

The "Show" button in a command dialog will show all of the files that match the file specification in the edit field to the left. This may include subdirectories if you've selected that option (for example, in COPY or DIR), so it may take a few seconds to populate the list before displaying it.
