NAME

SYNOPSIS
       tk_dialog window title text bitmap default string(3,n) string(3,n) ...
_________________________________________________________________


DESCRIPTION
       This  procedure  is  part  of  the  Tk  script  library.  Its arguments
       describe a dialog(1,3,n) box:

       window Name of top-level window to use for dialog.  Any existing window
              by this name is destroyed.

       title  Text to appear in(1,8) the window manager's title bar for the dialog.

       text   Message to appear in(1,8) the top portion of the dialog(1,3,n) box.

       bitmap If non-empty, specifies a bitmap to display in(1,8) the  top  portion
              of  the  dialog(1,3,n),  to  the left of the text.  If this is an empty
              string(3,n) then no bitmap is displayed in(1,8) 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(1,3,n) (0 for the leftmost button, and so on).  If  less(1,3)
              than  zero  or  an  empty string(3,n) then there won't be any default
              button.

       string(3,n) There will be one button for  each  of  these  arguments.   Each
              string(3,n) specifies text to display in(1,8) a button, in(1,8) order from left
              to right.

       After creating a dialog(1,3,n) box, tk_dialog waits for the user to select(2,7,2 select_tut) one
       of  the  buttons  either by clicking on the button with the mouse or by
       typing return to invoke the default button (if(3,n) 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(1,3,n)'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(1,8) any way
       except to invoke the dialog(1,3,n) box.
