   While trying to initialize a dialog text as following:
                           (getf init-list :text)).....)
   I am getting the following error message:
   :ERROR function SET-DIALOG-ITEM-TEXT is undefined
   while exicuting EXIST
   Could someone tell me where is my mistake?

This is a mighty small code fragment to go on, but I'll make some
assumptions about the environment in which it's trying to run.  Looks
like it's inside the EXIST method for a window, in which case the
SET-DIALOG-ITEM-TEXT is undefined because *WINDOW* has no method for
SET-DIALOG-ITEM-TEXT.  Maybe what you meant to say was:

(defobfun (exist *my-window*) (init-list)
  (oneof *xxx-dialog-item*                        ; some kind of dialog-item
    :dialog-item-text (getf init-list :text)
