6.3.4 Dialog windows

In many cases the IDE displays a dialog window to get user input. The main difference to normal windows is that other windows cannot be activated while a dialog is active. Also the menu is not accessible while in a dialog. This behaviour is called modal. To activate another window, the modal window or dialog must be closed first.

A typical dialog window is shown in figure (6.3).
