XmCreateQuestionDialog is a convenience creation function that creates a DialogShell and an unmanaged MessageBox child of the DialogShell. A QuestionDialog is used to get the answer to a question from the user. It includes a symbol, a message, and three buttons. The default symbol is a question mark. The default button labels are OK, Cancel, and Help.

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

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