This function shows a dialog centralized on the screen, with the message and the buttons. The ‘\n’ character can be added to the message to indicate line change.
A button is not shown if its parameter is NULL. This is valid only for b2 and b3.
Button 1 is set as the "DEFAULTENTER" and "DEFAULTESC". If Button 2 exists it is set as the "DEFAULTESC". If Button 3 exists it is set as the "DEFAULTESC".
The dialog uses a global attribute called "PARENTDIALOG" as the parent dialog if it is defined. It also uses a global attribute called "ICON" as the dialog icon if it is defined.
