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 won't 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.
