           use Curses::UI;
           my $cui = new Curses::UI;
           my $win = $cui->add('window_id', 'Window');

           # The hard way.
           # -------------
           my $dialog = $win->add(
               'mydialog', 'Dialog::Question',
               -question   => 'How super awesome are you?'

           # The easy way (see Curses::UI documentation).
           # --------------------------------------------
           my $value = $cui->question(-question => 'How super awesome are you?');

           # or even
           my $awesomeness = $cui->question('How super awesome are you?');


       Curses::UI::Dialog::Question is a basic question dialog. This type of dialog has a message
       on it, a TextEntry answer box, and one or more buttons. It can be used to have a user
       enter some answer in response to a question.

       See exampes/demo-widgets in the distribution for a short demo.


       ·   -title < TEXT >

           Set the title of the dialog window to TEXT.

       ·   -question < TEXT >

           This option sets the question to show to TEXT. The text may contain newline (\n)

       ·   -buttons < ARRAYREF >

       ·   -selected < INDEX >

       ·   -buttonalignment < VALUE >

           These options sets the buttons that have to be used. For an explanation of these
           options, see the Curses::UI::Buttonbox documentation.


       ·   new ( HASH )

       ·   layout ( )

       ·   draw ( BOOLEAN )

       ·   focus ( )

           These are standard methods. See Curses::UI::Container for an explanation of these.

       ·   get ( )

           This method will call get on the TextEntry object of the dialog and return its
           returnvalue. See Curses::UI::TextEntry for more information on this.  If the cancel
           button was pressed, the return value will be undef.
