This would be done using Gtk#.

First, save the following source code into a file named "md.cs":

	// file: md.cs
	// Gtk# MessageDialog Example (from MonoDoc)
	using Gtk;

	class MessageDialogExample {
		public static void Main ()
			Application.Init ();              // Initialize Gtk# library

			MessageDialog md = new MessageDialog (
			  null,                           // parent window
			  DialogFlags.DestroyWithParent,  // specifies dialog behavior
			  MessageType.Info,               // controls icon displayed
			  ButtonsType.Close,              // Button(s) to display
			  "Insert message here");         // Message to display

			int result = md.Run ();           // Display the dialog
			                                  // result contains the button clicked
			md.Destroy();                     // Cleanup Resources

Next, compile the program:

	mcs -pkg:gtk-sharp md.cs

The "-pkg" argument is used so that the gtk-sharp assemblies are
properly referenced.

Execute the program with:

	mono md.exe
