Dear Stata-Users,
I'm wondering whether one can use macros in S8-dialog windows. What I want
to do is to manipulate the string shown by a dialog control (preferably, a
text control, but it could also be an edit control) depending on the choice
the user made in a radio control group or a FILE control. 
Obviously that's not possible within the dialog, because one cannot use
string functions there. Therefore I transfer the value associated with the
radio/file controls to an ado-file, where the  string is manipulated. But
how to make the dialog understand the macros generated by the ado?
I tried the EDIT-control, but it accepts global macros only as a one-time
default.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Sincerely
Dankwart Plattner
