– choose these input fields to be any of the following: simple text,
password field, popup list or check box
– mix these input field types as you see fit
– pre-enter text into all input fields
– have the results of the dialog put into fields without parsing
– show a list dialog
– show temporary flash screens
– show a progress bar for lengthy operations
– position the dialog box anywhere on the screen
– add a standard icon or your own icons
