I only posted a DI_1()-Demo in the thread
"Demo for the brilliant Dialog_Input_1() command"
and two tools in the threads
"Scrollable text in DI1() for big dialogs"
"DI1-PAGER, a complete application and helper macro"
All in this conference.

That depends on your macro...

No, absolutely not!
You have to code your macros by yourself to be save!
VEDIT is a nice platform for macros but has no AI built in (yet).
