	   $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   -title < TEXT >

	   Set the title of the	dialog window to TEXT.

       o   -message < TEXT >

	   This	option sets the	initial	message	to show	to TEXT.

METHODS
       o   new ( OPTIONS )

       o   layout ( )

       o   draw	( BOOLEAN )

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

       o   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.
