XmCreateBulletinBoardDialog — The BulletinBoard BulletinBoardDialog convenience creation function

Widget XmCreateBulletinBoardDialog(
Widget parent,

XmCreateBulletinBoardDialog is a convenience creation function that creates a DialogShell and an unmanaged BulletinBoard child of the DialogShell. A BulletinBoardDialog is used for interactions not supported by the standard dialog set. This function does not automatically create any labels, buttons, or other dialog components. Such components should be added by the application after the BulletinBoardDialog is created.

Use XtManageChild to pop up the BulletinBoardDialog (passing the BulletinBoard as the widget parameter); use XtUnmanageChild to pop it down.

XmCreateBulletinBoardDialog forces the value of the Shell resource XmNallowShellResize to True.
