Labels for the list and text field


Three or four buttons

The default button labels are OK, Cancel, and Help. By default, an Apply button is also created. If the parent of the SelectionBox is a DialogShell, it is managed; otherwise it is unmanaged. Additional work area children may be added to the SelectionBox after creation.
