NAME
tk_dialog - Create modal dialog and wait for response SYNOPSIS
tk_dialog window title text bitmap default string string ... _________________________________________________________________ DESCRIPTION
This procedure is part of the Tk script library. Its arguments describe a dialog box: window Name of top-level window to use for dialog. Any existing window by this name is destroyed. 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 box. 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 If this is an integer greater than or equal to zero, then it gives the index of the button that is to be the default button for the dialog (0 for the leftmost button, and so on). If less than zero or an empty string then there will not be any default button. string There will be one button for each of these arguments. Each string specifies text to display in a button, in order from left to right. After creating a dialog box, tk_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 index of the selected button: 0 for the leftmost button, 1 for the button next to it, and so on. If the dialog's window is destroyed before the user selects one of the buttons, then -1 is returned. While waiting for the user to respond, tk_dialog sets a local grab. This prevents the user from interacting with the application in any way except to invoke the dialog box. EXAMPLE
set reply [tk_dialog .foo "The Title" "Do you want to say yes?" questhead 0 Yes No "I'm not sure"] SEE ALSO

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
