XmCreateWorkingDialog — The MessageBox WorkingDialog convenience creation function


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


XmCreateWorkingDialog is a convenience creation function that creates a DialogShell and an unmanaged MessageBox child of the DialogShell. A WorkingDialog informs users that there is a time-consuming operation in progress and allows them to cancel the operation. It includes a symbol, a message, and three buttons. The default symbol is an hourglass. The default button labels are OK, Cancel, and Help.

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

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