ArcGIS 10, Python -- how to get interactive user input

Discussion created by xiaowen on Oct 29, 2010
I am trying to build a tool which can zoom to a polygon on screen, then ask the user to type in the value and record the value in the shpfile. However, I can not make raw_input work in either python window or toolbox--> add script. Can anyone help me on this? Thank you very much.
