Summary

Function: DialogPlus( key avatar, string message, list buttons, integer channel, integer CurMenu );

Creates a dialog menu for storing more than 12 buttons, very useful for Inventory items, Scanners, and just huge lists.

• key avatar
• string message message to be displayed
• list buttons button labels
• integer channel
• integer CurMenu Parsed menu index.

'CurMenu' will take place of an integer menuindex.
This requires a Listen Event when using DialogPlus to allow the Back and Next button to work.
