Some examples of usage.

# my_plugin.rb
require 'inputbox'

# Create a new Inputbox. The name is used as part of the registry key.
# The registry key (if inputbox is saved) will be: "Inputbox_Unique Name"
@options ="Unique Name")

@options.add("Name") # add a empty text input
@options.add("Age", 39) # a text input with 39 as the default value.
@options.add("Ruby", ["Beginner", "Intermediate", "Advanced"]) # Dropdown
@options.add("Sketchup", [1, 2, 3, 4, 5], 3) # dropdown, 3 as default

# Display the dialog

# Access the options

# Iterate prompt, value pairs
@options.each { |k, v| puts "#{k.inspect} = #{v.inspect}" }

# By name
name = @options["Name"]

# By Index
age = @options[1]

# Persistent Storage

require 'inoutbox'

# Create
@options ="Unique Name")

# Load
if @options.prompts.empty?
  # Build Inputbox
