XmCreateMessageDialog — The MessageBox MessageDialog convenience creation function

Synopsis

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

Description

XmCreateMessageDialog is a convenience creation function that creates a DialogShell and an unmanaged MessageBox child of the DialogShell. A MessageDialog is used for common interaction tasks, which include giving information, asking questions, and reporting errors. It includes a symbol, a message, and three buttons. By default, there is no symbol. The default button labels are OK, Cancel, and Help.

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

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