XmCreateTemplateDialog — A MessageBox TemplateDialog convenience creation function


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


XmCreateTemplateDialog is a convenience creation function that creates a DialogShell and an unmanaged MessageBox child of the DialogShell. The MessageBox widget's XmNdialogType resource is set to XmDIALOG_TEMPLATE. By default, the TemplateDialog widget contains only the separator child. You can build a customized dialog by adding children to the TemplateDialog.

You can create the standard MessageBox pushbuttons, Cancel, Help, and OK, by specifying the associated callback and label string resources. Setting XmNsymbolPixmap or XmNmessageString creates a symbol or message label.

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

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