Segmentation fault using dialogs
@bosco Great thank you - your new dialog sounds great - I will give it a try and let you know how i get on. Thanks!
@bosco Wow!!! Just want to give you some early feedback - but so far I absolutely love the new dialog - I am doing all the things that usually crash it and its working brilliant! I will carry on using as normal but I am very optimistic. Thanks Bosco you are a genius.
@LankyDonkey I'm glad it's working for you. There is an updated version.

@bosco Thank you Bosco - I have the new version - still working great!
There are just a couple of small things I noticed.
If i default a check value to True eg
rating_dicts.append(dict(type="check", value = True, title="3"))
It doesnt show the item with a check against it in the pop up dialog (This just means if I select for example rating =3 then I want to change that later to rating =4 - then I cant 'switch off' the previous rating = 3 and then select rating = 4. I can work around it by clearing all filters and creating a new one.
In the Genre dialog that I use - if i scroll down to say New Genre which is a text field when i click on it the dialog scrolls to the top and then the keyboard obscures the field so I cant see what I am typing
@LankyDonkey Issue #1 is fixed in the latest update.
I thought I had the built in form dialog fixed with one line of code
c.cells = None, but scrolling down to 'New Genre' it still crashes.
I'll look at issue #2 in my version.
@bosco issue #2 is fixed.
@bosco Brilliant! I can confirm both issues are fixed. You are a star

Just wanted to say we're encountering issues with the built-in
dialogsmodule here too.
My iPad is still on ipadOS 15, but one of my co-developers is using ipadOS 16 and he sees freezes followed by segmentation faults when the UI tries to show a dialog box using that module.
This is during testing of the "big move" of our codebase from pythonista3.3 to pythonista3.4 and python2 to python3, so we thought at first it was something we were doing, but based on this thread, I think it may definitely be a bug in the dialogs module.
@omz @LankyDonkey @shinyformica
I have created a new issue here: Pythonista-Issues #707.
@bosco Thank you. Have used my new dialog lots and still hasn't crashed!
