How can I temporarily halt the main Dialog() from accepting other events? I
have an event that opens a dialog box (an alert) that I bring focus to,
disable the other windows, etc. I want to wait for user input (click a
button) before moving on. However, the script picks up other things going on
and it closes my DialogBox as fast as it opens it.

Show it modally. I forget the exact syntax, but it should be fairly easy to
figure out from the documentation.
