Thanks to Jason I was able to properly set up the parameters of a script tool. I would like to get the same dialog box from the script tool to appear when used from a button in ArcMap.
I know how to create a button and getting working, but only if it does not contain parameters. I'm assuming that this customization needs to be carried out using VB, or whatever other language.
So, is there some generic code that can be used to create the same dialog box as the one that appears in the script tool? I'm not a programmer (although I can hack may way through stuff in Python) so I don't know where to start.
