Displays a dialog in the current position, or changes a control VISIBLE attribute.


int IupShow(Ihandle *ih); [in C]
iup.Show(ih: ihandle) -> (ret: number) [in Lua]
or ih:show() -> (ret: number) [in IupLua]

ih: identifier of the interface element.

Returns: IUP_NOERROR if successful. If there was an error returns IUP_ERROR.


For dialogs it is equivalent to call IupShowXY using IUP_CURRENT. See IupShowXY for more details.

For other controls, to call IupShow is the same as setting VISIBLE=YES.
