Hi all,

Is there any way I can list all the commands in stata
that currently work using a dialog box?
You don't tell me what operating environment you are using. However, most operating environments allow the user to list all files with the .dlg extension, which Stata uses for dialog box files. For instance, in Windows 98, I might get into Windows Explorer, find the file c:\stata8\ado, and use the menu sequence

Tools->Find->Files and folders

to list all files *.dlg in all subfolders of c:\stata8\ado, where the dialog box files are kept (along with the ado-files).

This will find the official Stata dialog box files. If you think you may have installed unofficial Stata commands with dialog boxes, then carry out the same search in your personal Stata ado-files folder, which, in Windows, is usually called c:\ado or something similar.

I hope this helps.
