DialogInput

DialogInput[expr]
interactively puts up expr as a dialog notebook, waits until a DialogReturn[e] is evaluated from within it, and then returns the result e.
DialogInput[{x=x0, y=y0, ...}, expr]
sets up local variables x, y, ... in expr.
  • The Mathematica kernel in which DialogInput is evaluated will block until the DialogReturn in the dialog is evaluated.
