Using Libraries in JS code of custom buttons



has anybody experiences in using JS libraries as ext.js inside the javascript code of a custom button for executing javascript?


I would like to use custom list buttons with the onclick functionality for selected records in the list view, depending on input values by the user. I want to use the standard Salesforce list views here (no custom VF Page with controller functionality).

The problem is how to invoke any InputBox (or better a Listbox/Combobox with suggestions) by the javascript code to wait for a user input. At the moment I use the "promp()" JS function. I would prefer using MessageBoxes or similar from an external JS library as ext.js or jQuery.  Is this possible at all?

I would appreciate any litte running sample how to invoke such an input box and use the result for further handling inside the custom button code.


Thanks in advance,
