NAME

Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::Message - Provides a simple message dialog.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



 use Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::Message ( destroy_with_parent => TRUE,
                                  modal => TRUE,
                                  no_separator => FALSE );

 # do some stuff like creating your apps main $window then,
 # to ensure that all messages use the right parent, set it:
 $Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::Message::parent_window = $window;

 # now popup a new dialog ( blocking the main loop if there is one )
 new_and_run
  Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::Message ( title => "Dialog Title",
                               text => "This is a simple message" );

 # now popup a somwhat useful dialog that doesnt block any main loop
 # but on the other side of the coin, if there is no main loop the
 # dialog will be completely unresponsive.
 new_show
  Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::Message ( title => "Uhm",
                               text => "Use when there is a main loop." );



DESCRIPTION

This module provides a simple dialog api that wraps Gtk2::Dialog objectively. The objective is a clean and simple message dialog (only an OK button).

OPTIONS

All public methods (and the entire class) support the following options:
<B>titleB> => STRING The title of the dialog window. Defaults to an empty string.
<B>textB> => STRING The text to be displayed. This is the core purpose of the module and is the only mandatory argument.
<B>iconB> => /path/to/image || stock-id || Gtk2::Gdk::Pixbuf || Gtk2::Image The dialog-sized image to place to the left of the text. Note: there are five aliased stock-ids which correspond to the five gtk-dialog-* ids, warning, question, info, error and authentication. Defaults to no icon being created at all.
<B>parent_windowB> => Gtk2::Window Reference to the main application window.
<B>destroy_with_parentB> => BOOL When the <B>parent_windowB> is destroyed, what do we do? Defaults to FALSE.
<B>modalB> => BOOL Does this message make the <B>parent_windowB> freeze while the message exists. Defaults to FALSE.
<B>no_separatorB> => BOOL Draw the horizontal separator between the content area and the button area below. Defaults to FALSE.

PUBLIC METHODS

OBJECT = <B>newB> ( OPTIONS | STRING ) Create a new Gtk2::Dialog with only an OK button, some text and an optional icon to the left of the text. The icon can be any of the following: a stock-id string, a Gtk2::Image, Gtk2::Gdk::Pixbuf or the full path to an image. Return a Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::Message object. In the special case of being passed only one argument, all options are set to defaults and the one argument is used as the <B>textB> option.
<B>new_and_runB> ( OPTIONS ) Supports all the same arguments as new(). This will create a new Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::Message, show_all(), run() and then destroy the dialog immediately.
<B>new_and_showB> ( OPTIONS ) Supports all the same arguments as new(). This will create a new Gtk2::Ex::Dialogs::Message, show_all() and process any pending gtk events. This functionality is only of any practical use when there is a Gtk2 main loop running. If there is no main loop running the dialog will be visible but completely unresponsive to the end-user.
