I was looking in the FB II Help Ref (online help) for Dialog.

Didn't see it there, nor under edit field. FB 3 docs are more thorough in
the Dialog Dept.

I tried it out, but went back to an event loop check that checks every 5th
of a second if the dialog is open. Before I gave up on the beast for a
while due to a rampant logic error somewhere on my part.

I am glad that FB changed some, or I would be beating my graphic head.
