is an option for Dialog which gives a list of symbols whose values should be localized in the dialog.
  • DialogSymbols:>{x, y, ...} specifies that x, y, ... should have local values for the duration of the dialog.
  • DialogSymbols:>{x=x0, ...} defines initial values for variables.
  • The DialogSymbols option sets up local values in a dialog in the same way that a Block enclosing the dialog would.
