Presenting Shell Output In Nice Requester

Hi there

I was wondering how i can present the output of "VControl BO" command in a nice requester like the one coffin uses when clicking the "Get my Vampire's S/N" from the tools menu.That menu uses the RequestChoice command which is fine for small text outputs like the core info for example. When i use the same command for the Board Info then i get a huge long requester from one side of the screen to the other and the info on a straight line. Of course not all info is in there cause there is not enough space.

Any idea how i can achieve a nice presentation of the Board output?

Thanks

You can do it that way :

This is done with a simple AmigaDOS script - which use some RequestChoice replacement (see "Advice" Aminet tool) :

Made an update, that use own-made RequestChoice replacement, and add IDE speed selection.

Thanks again for your help
