[QGIS-Developer] Calling Processing Algorithm GUI From Menu

What I am asking is for the API call to display a particular Processing
algorithm dialog box. For example in the processing documentation at:


there are the following calls:

processing.runalg(name_of_the_algorithm, param1, param2, ..., paramN,
       Output1, Output2, ..., OutputN)

The documentation does not mention any call to display the associated
dialog box and that is what I am looking for.

Incidentally, is there processing API documentation? It doesn't appear to
be a part of the QGIS python API.
