Creating and Displaying Maplet Applications in Command-Line Maple


You can use the Command-Line version of Maple to create and display Maplet applications.



To use Maplet applications in the Command-Line version, enter the Maplet application code at the Maple prompt as you would for Maple code.


Alternatively, using a text editor, enter a Maplet application definition into a text file.  Save the text file with a .mpl extension.


Depending on your operating system, you can run the .mpl file by:


* Double-clicking it from your file browser or


* Entering maple and the filename as an argument at the command line.


The Maple code is executed in Command-Line Maple. If a Maplet application is defined with the Maplet[Display] command specified, it is displayed.


Copy the following Maplet application code into your Command-Line session.  Press ENTER.


maplet:=MapletClick a Button:,ButtonOK,Shutdowntrue,ButtonCancel,Shutdown:


Save the following example as a .mpl file.  From your file browser, double-click the .mpl file you created.
