XmCreateWarningDialog — The MessageBox WarningDialog convenience creation function

Widget XmCreateWarningDialog(
Widget parent,

XmCreateWarningDialog is a convenience creation function that creates a DialogShell and an unmanaged MessageBox child of the DialogShell. A WarningDialog warns users of action consequences and gives them a choice of resolutions. It includes a symbol, a message, and three buttons. The default symbol is an exclamation point. The default button labels are OK, Cancel, and Help.

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

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