Summary0012861: Unable to ask for user input from within ParaView Python macro
DescriptionIn ParaView 3.8.1, it was possible to write a Python macro that asked the user for input with a dialog window. This was done with the following simple code:

    import PyQt4.QtGui
    (ret, ok) = PyQt4.QtGui.QInputDialog.getInt(
        PyQt4.QtGui.QWidget(), 'T', 'L')
    if not ok:
        raise Exception('input error')
    print ret

Starting with 3.10 and continuing with 3.12.0, this will fail. If there is a good reason to disallow "import PyQt4.QtGui" in ParaView, I understand, but can we implement equivalent functionality to these four static functions
from within a ParaView Python macro?
