SYNOPSIS



    use Curses::UI;
    my $cui = new Curses::UI;
    my $win = $cui->add(window_id, Window);

    # The hard way.
    # -------------
    my $dialog = $win->add(
        mydialog, Dialog::Status,
    -message   => Hello, world!,
    );

    $dialog->draw();

    $win->delete(mydialog);

    # The easy way (see Curses::UI documentation).
    # --------------------------------------------
    $cui->status( -message => Some message );

    # or even:
    $cui->status( Some message );

    $cui->nostatus;



DESCRIPTION

Curses::UI::Dialog::Status is not really a dialog, since the user has no way of interacting with it. It is merely a way of presenting status information to the user of your program.

See exampes/demo-Curses::UI::Dialog::Status in the distribution for a short demo.

OPTIONS

o <B>-titleB> < TEXT >

Set the title of the dialog window to TEXT.

o <B>-messageB> < TEXT >

This option sets the initial message to show to TEXT.

METHODS

o <B>newB> ( OPTIONS )
o <B>layoutB> ( )
o <B>drawB> ( BOOLEAN )

These are standard methods. See Curses::UI::Container for an explanation of these.

o <B>messageB> ( TEXT )

This method will update the message of the status dialog to TEXT. For this update to show, you will have to call the <B>drawB> method of the progress dialog.
