DESCRIPTION

       The messagedialog command creates a message dialog compos­
       ite  widget.  The messagedialog is derived from the Dialog
       class and is composed of an image and  associated  message
       text with commands to manipulate the dialog buttons.



METHODS

       The  messagedialog command creates a new Tcl command whose
       name is pathName.  This command may be used to invoke var­
       ious  operations on the widget.  It has the following gen­
       eral form:

              pathName option ?arg arg ...?

       Option and the args determine the exact  behavior  of  the
       command.  The following commands are possible for message­
       dialog widgets:



INHERITED METHODS

       add             buttonconfigure                defaulthide
       insert          invoke         show

       See the "buttonbox" widget manual entry for details on the
       above inherited methods.

       childsite

       See  the  "dialogshell" widget manual entry for details on
       the above inherited methods.

       activate        center         deactivate

       See the "dialogshell" widget manual entry for  details  on
       the above inherited methods.


WIDGET-SPECIFIC METHODS

       pathName cget option
              Returns  the  current  value  of  the configuration
              option given by option.  Option may have any of the
              Query  or  modify  the configuration options of the
              widget.  If no option is specified, returns a  list
              describing  all  of the available options for path­
              Name (see Tk_ConfigureInfo for information  on  the
              format  of this list).  If option is specified with
              no value, then the command returns a list  describ­
              ing the one named option (this list will be identi­
              cal to  the  corresponding  sublist  of  the  value
              returned  if  no  option  is specified).  If one or
              more option-value pairs  are  specified,  then  the
              command modifies the given widget option(s) to have
              the given  value(s);   in  this  case  the  command
              returns  an  empty  string.  Option may have any of
              the values accepted by the messagedialog command.
