pekwm_dialog − a xmessage inspired dialog application


pekwm_dialog [−−display] message


pekwm_dialog presents a simple dialog with a title, image, message text and a button for each options specified. If no options are specified the dialog will have an Ok button.

The caller can identify which options was selected by checking the exit code of the application. The first option will exit with status code 0, next with 1 and so on.

Given this behavior it is recommended to have ok as the first option and then cancel as the second and then further options. This caters for standard exit code 0 on ok, and cancel would give the same exit code as on errors.

The illustration below depicts the layout of dialog elements:
