XmCreateFormDialog — A Form FormDialog convenience creation function


#include <Xm/Form.h>
Widget XmCreateFormDialog(
Widget parent,

XmCreateFormDialog is a convenience creation function that creates a DialogShell and an unmanaged Form child of the DialogShell. A FormDialog 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 FormDialog is created.

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

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