XmCreatePromptDialog — The SelectionBox PromptDialog convenience creation function


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


XmCreatePromptDialog is a convenience creation function that creates a DialogShell and an unmanaged SelectionBox child of the DialogShell. A PromptDialog prompts the user for text input. It includes a message, a text input region, and three managed buttons. The default button labels are OK, Cancel, and Help. An additional button, with Apply as the default label, is created unmanaged; it may be explicitly managed if needed. One additional WorkArea child may be added to the SelectionBox after creation.

XmCreatePromptDialog forces the value of the SelectionBox resource XmNdialogType to XmDIALOG_PROMPT.

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

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