Curses::UI::Dialog::Status(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation Curses::UI::Dialog::Status(3)

Curses::UI::Dialog::Status - Create and manipulate status dialogs


    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!',



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

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


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.

  • -title < TEXT >

    Set the title of the dialog window to TEXT.

  • -message < TEXT >

    This option sets the initial message to show to TEXT.

  • new ( OPTIONS )
  • layout ( )
  • draw ( BOOLEAN )

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

  • message ( TEXT )

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