10.5 Creating your own dialogs

The CAPI provides a number of built-in dialogs which should cover the majority of most peoples needs. However, there is always the occasional need to create custom built dialogs, and the CAPI makes this very simple, using the function display-dialog which displays any CAPI interface as a dialog, and the functions exit-dialog and abort-dialog as the means to return from such a dialog.
