NAME

       AcknowledgeDialog,  BasicDialog,  ConfirmDialog,  GridDialog,  PrintDialog,  UChooser - an
       assortment of useful dialog boxes

SYNOPSIS

       #include <Unidraw/dialogs.h>

DESCRIPTION

       BasicDialog is the base class for subclasses  that  implement  simple  but  common  dialog
       boxes.   AcknowledgeDialog simply displays a one or two line message with a PushButton for
       dismissing the dialog.  ConfirmDialog displays one or two lines of descriptive  text  with
       three pushbuttons marked ``Yes,'' ``No,'' and ``Cancel'', all of which dismiss the dialog.
       ConfirmDialog also provides an interface for retrieving  the  button  pushed.   GridDialog
       lets the user specify the resolution of a cartesian grid. PrintDialog is a FileChooser for
       specifying the name of a file or a printer.  Finally, UChooser extends  the  StringChooser
       protocol  to  provide  additional useful features, including support for alphabetizing its
       StringBrowser's contents and for embellishing the dialog with descriptive text.

BASICDIALOG PUBLIC OPERATIONS

       void SetTitle(const char*)
       void SetSubtitle(const char*)
              BasicDialogs can display one or two lines of  descriptive  text.   These  functions
              change  the  text  appearing in these lines.  The change appears immediately if the
              dialog is visible.

BASICDIALOG PROTECTED OPERATIONS

       BasicDialog(
           ButtonState*, const char* title = ``'',
           const char* subtitle = ``'', Alignment = Center
       )

       BasicDialog(
           const char*, ButtonState*, const char* title = ``'',
           const char* subtitle = ``'', Alignment = Center
       )
              Instantiate a BasicDialog, supplying an optional instance  name,  a  button  state,
              title  and subtitle strings, and the dialog's alignment, which is used by its Popup
              operation.  These operations  will  initialize  two  protected  MarginFrame  member
              variables,  _title and _subtitle, which will contain either a Message instance with
              the specified string or a piece of glue if the string is null.  These  MarginFrames
              will be composed vertically at the top of the dialog, and no vertical space will be
              taken up by a null title or subtitle string.

       virtual void Forward(Event&)
       boolean IsAChild(Interactor*)
              These functions are useful for  rejecting  spurious  events  while  the  dialog  is
              visible,  effectively  locking out the rest of the application.  If Forward's event
              argument has x and y coordinates that fall within the dialog's canvas, then Forward
              calls  Handle on the event's target.  Otherwise the BasicDialog's Handle is called.
              IsAChild returns true if the given interactor is a child of the dialog.

ACKNOWLEDGEDIALOG PUBLIC OPERATIONS

       AcknowledgeDialog(const char* title, const char* subtitle)
              Construct an AcknowledgeDialog instance with the given title and subtitle.

       virtual void Acknowledge()
              Call this function when the application should wait for the user to acknowledge the
              dialog.   It  returns  when  the  user  has  pressed and released the dialog's push
              button.  This function does not pop up the dialog.

CONFIRMDIALOG PUBLIC OPERATIONS

       ConfirmDialog(const char* title, const char* subtitle)
              Construct a ConfirmDialog instance with the given title and subtitle.

       virtual char Confirm()
              Call this function when the application should wait for the  user  to  confirm  the
              dialog.   It  returns  'y',  'n',  or '^G' ('\007'), depending whether the ``Yes,''
              ``No,'' or ``Cancel'' push button was pressed, respectively. This function does not
              pop up the dialog.

GRIDDIALOG PUBLIC OPERATIONS

       GridDialog()
              Construct  a  GridDialog  instance.  The GridDialog contains a MatchEditor instance
              for specifying the size of the grid's graduations in the x and y  axes.   The  user
              can  specify  these values in pixels, points, centimeters, or inches by clicking on
              the appropriate radio button.

       virtual void GetValues(float& xincr, float& yincr)
              Return the user-specified values for the size of the grid's graduations,  in  pixel
              units.

       void SelectMessage()
              Highlight the values in the dialog's MatchEditor.

PRINTDIALOG PUBLIC OPERATIONS

       PrintDialog(boolean to_printer = true)
              Construct  a  PrintDialog instance, optionally specifying whether the dialog should
              prompt for a printer name or a file name.

       void ToPrinter(boolean)
       boolean ToPrinter()
              Specify and Return whether or not the string specified in the PrintDialog refers to
              a printer name.

UCHOOSER PUBLIC OPERATIONS

       UChooser(
           const char* title, const char* subtitle,
           const char* acceptLabel, const char* sample
       )
              Construct  a  UChooser  instance.   The  title  and subtitle parameters specify the
              descriptive text at the top of the dialog box.  This  constructor  initializes  two
              protected  MarginFrame  member variables _title and _subtitle that are analogous to
              the corresponding BasicDialog members described above.

       void Clear()
              Removes all strings from the UChooser's string browser.

       void Include(const char*)
       void Exclude(const char*)
              Include inserts a string into the string browser  at  a  position  defined  by  the
              UChooser's  Position  function,  described below.  Exclude removes the given string
              from the string browser.  If the string browser contains more than one copy of  the
              string, then Exclude removes the one with the smallest index.

       void SetTitle(const char*)
       void SetSubtitle(const char*)
              These  functions  change  the  text appearing in UChooser's title or subtitle.  The
              change appears immediately if the dialog is visible.

UCHOOSER PROTECTED OPERATIONS

       UChooser(ButtonState*, int rows, int cols, Alignment)
              Direct the UChooser to initialize itself with a string browser of  the  given  size
              without  initializing the MarginFrame members.  Subclasses that require a different
              look-and-feel can use this constructor to avoid creating MarginFrames  or  Messages
              they  don't  need.  The Init, Interior, and AddScroller functions (described below)
              factor out different parts of the default look and feel, allowing subclasses to use
              parts of it.

       void Init(const char* title, const char* subtitle)
              Explicitly  initialize  the  MarginFrame  members to display the given title and/or
              subtitle strings.

       Interactor* Interior(const char* acceptLabel)
              Return an interactor that composes the UChooser's default look and feel.

       Interactor* AddScroller(Interactor*)
              Return a composition containing the given interactor with a vertical scroll bar and
              adjusters  along  its  right side, initializing them to scroll the interactor.  The
              Interior function uses this operation to provide the  string  browser's   scrolling
              interface.

       virtual int Position(const char*)
              Return  an appropriate string browser index for the given string.  By default, this
              function returns the index that will place the string in alphabetical  order  among
              those in the string browser.
