This code above is baffling me. When I run the script everything pops up the way it should. But when I select a object to test the render layer part of my script and excute the button. It gives me this error:
Quote: Error: $myTextFieldButtonGrp" is an undeclared variable.

Which this error isn't that baffling, but the baffling part is that I excute the same UI script but without the
Quote: global proc aasLightBox()
The render layer script seems to work. So my main question is why is it not working when the UI script is withing the global proc?
I dream in wireframes....

$myTextFieldButtonGrp is only variable and has no value.

string $myTextFieldButtonGrp;

.... so you need to give the control a name.

string $myTextFieldButtonGrp = "myTFB_GRP_1";
string $myButtonCommand = "createRenderLayer -name (`textFieldButtonGrp "+" -q -text $myTextFieldButtonGrp`)";

textFieldButtonGrp -label "Name" -text "" -buttonLabel "Create" $myTextFieldButtonGrp;
textFieldButtonGrp -e -bc $myButtonCommand $myTextFieldButtonGrp;
