name : dialog

Create a dialog box.     DCL Cluster Tile

This cluster tile defines a dialog box. The name prefix defines the case-sensitive name of the dialog box. This name is required to identify the dialog box within the DCL file.

To access the dialog box within LISP, use the new_dialog (to display the dialog box) functions, as in the following example:

(setq dlg (load_dialog "dclfile"))

(new_dialog "name" dlg)

NOTE When both the value attributes are defined, value takes precedence over label.

name : dialog {

          initial_focus = "string";

          label = "string";

          pointsize = int;

          typeface = "string";

objext : dialog {

initial_focus = "OK"
