Hi @xiix.xoox,

This should do the trick.

import Rhino.UI
import Eto.Drawing as drawing
import Eto.Forms as forms

class SimpleEtoDialog(forms.Dialog):
    def __init__(self):
        self.Title = "Sample Eto Dialog"
        self.ClientSize = drawing.Size(200, 200)
        self.Padding = drawing.Padding(5)
        self.Resizable = False

        button = forms.Button()
        button.Text = "Click Me!"
        button.Click += self.OnPushPickButton
        self.Content = button
    def OnPickPoint(self, sender, e):
        Rhino.Input.RhinoGet.GetPoint("Pick a point", True)
    def OnPushPickButton(self, sender, e):
        Rhino.UI.EtoExtensions.PushPickButton(self, self.OnPickPoint)
dialog = SimpleEtoDialog()

Hi Dale, how do I then use the point data elsewhere in my code?

Hi @egdivad, the method to get a point returns a tuple from which you can get the command result and the point if picking the point worked:

    def OnPickPoint(self, sender, e):
        rc, pt = Rhino.Input.RhinoGet.GetPoint("Pick a point", True)
        if rc == Rhino.Commands.Result.Success:
            self.Point = pt
            print "Point picked: {}".format(pt)
            self.Point = None
            print "No point picked"

You might define self.Point already in your constructor function (__init__) and set it to None. The variable self.Point is then available in the scope of your class.
