How to prompt a "parameter window" during the execution of a script tool (or model)

Question asked by vchapuis on Oct 3, 2014

Hi all,

 

I am pretty new to ArcGis and ArcPy, so I apologize if my question seems straightforward. However, I have been looking on the web for quite a while and didn't find any answer so far. I am using ArcGis 10.2 for Desktop with Win7pro.

 

What I am trying to achieve is the following :

 

1) Run a script tool (or model) from the ArcGis window (that's easy)

2) This prompts the usual parameters window in which you fill all the needed fields (easy too)

3) At some point during the execution of the tool, I would like another tool to be executed (before the first tool stops its execution). When that's the case, I would like ArcGis to prompt a new window in which the user can enter the needed parameters for this tool.

 

My basic idea was to use only python code to prompt python GUI using TKinter during the execution of the script tool. I however understood that TKinter is not supported by ArcGis... Is that true  ? If yes, any other idea ??

 

Thanks in advance for your Help

 

Valentin
