XmCreateErrorDialog — The MessageBox ErrorDialog convenience creation function


#include <Xm/MessageB.h>
Widget XmCreateErrorDialog(
Widget parent,
String name,
ArgList arglist,
Cardinal argcount);


XmCreateErrorDialog is a convenience creation function that creates a DialogShell and an unmanaged MessageBox child of the DialogShell. An ErrorDialog warns the user of an invalid or potentially dangerous condition. It includes a symbol, a message, and three buttons. The default symbol is an octagon with a diagonal slash. The default button labels are OK, Cancel, and Help.

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

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