NAME
       Tk::Dialog - Create modal dialog and wait for a response.

SYNOPSIS
	   $dialog = $parent->Dialog(-option => value, ... );

DESCRIPTION
       This procedure is part of the Tk script library - its arguments describe a dialog box.
       After creating a dialog box, Dialog waits for the user to select one of the Buttons either
       by clicking on the Button with the mouse or by typing return to invoke the default Button
       (if any).  Then it returns the text string of the selected Button.

       While waiting for the user to respond, Dialog sets a local grab.  This prevents the user
       from interacting with the application in any way except to invoke the dialog box.  See the
       Show() method.

OPTIONS
       The following option/value pairs are supported:

       -title
	   Text to appear in the window manager's title bar for the dialog.

       -text
	   Message to appear in the top portion of the Dialog.

       -bitmap
	   If non-empty, specifies a bitmap to display in the top portion of the Dialog, to the
	   left of the text.  If this is an empty string then no bitmap is displayed in the
	   Dialog.

       -default_button
	   Text label string of the Button that displays the default ring.

       -buttons
	   A reference to a list of Button label strings.  Each string specifies text to display
	   in a Button, in order from left to right.

METHODS
       $answer = $dialog->Show(?-global?);
	   This method displays the Dialog, waits for the user's response, and stores the text
	   string of the selected Button in $answer.  If -global is specified a global (rather
	   than local) grab is performed.

	   The actual Dialog is shown using the Popup method. Any other options supplied to Show
	   are passed to Popup, and can be used to position the Dialog on the screen. Please read
	   Tk::Popup for details.

ADVERTISED WIDGETS
       Because Tk::Dialog is a subclass of Tk::DialogBox it inherits all the advertised
       subwidgets of its superclass: e.g. "B_button-text", where 'button-text' is a Button's
       -text value. Additionally, Tk::Dialog advertises:

       message
	   The dialog's Label widget containing the message text.

       bitmap
	   The dialog's Label widget containing the bitmap image.

EXAMPLE
       $dialog = $mw->Dialog(-text => 'Save File?', -bitmap => 'question', -title => 'Save File
       Dialog', -default_button => 'Yes', -buttons => [qw/Yes No Cancel/);

KEYWORDS
