StructDlg creates a modal dialog box that contains a user interface (UI) control for each of the input structure fields. In its simple form, StructDlg serves as a structure-based alternative to INPUTDLG and it is a convenient method for browsing and changing structure values (e.g. when the structure contains parameters).
In its advanced form, StructDlg allows for a quick and convenient text based definition of a GUI that may contain many styles of UI controls such as edit, popup menus, radio buttons, toggles and more.

Detailed examples are given in an HTML doc file.

A cancel button was added and the previously undocumented position argument is now easier to use and is documented. Closing the GUI with the (x) button does not crash the program.
