The iwidgets::dialog command creates a dialog box providing
standard buttons and a child site for use in derived classes.
The buttons include ok, apply, cancel, and help.  Methods and
Options exist to configure the buttons and their containing box.

The iwidgets::dialog command creates a new Tcl command whose name
is pathName.  This command may be used to invoke various
operations on the widget.  It has the following general form:
pathName option ?arg arg ...?  Option and the args determine the
exact behavior of the command.  The following commands are
possible for dialog widgets:
add             buttonconfigure                defaulthide
index           insert         invoke          show
See the "buttonbox" manual entry for details on the above
inherited methods.
childsite
See the "dialogshell" manual entry for details on the above
inherited methods.
activate        center         deactivate
See the "shell" manual entry for details on the above inherited
methods.

pathName cget option Returns the current value of the
configuration option given by option.  Option may have any of the
values accepted by the iwidgets::dialog command.  pathName
configure ?option? ?value option value ...?  Query or modify the
configuration options of the widget.  If no option is specified,
returns a list describing all of the available options for
pathName (see Tk_ConfigureInfo for information on the format of
this list).  If option is specified with no value, then the
command returns a list describing the one named option (this list
will be identical 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 iwidgets::dialog command.
