    I have read as many threads as I can find and my conclusion is that there is no facility for user defined dialog box (even via API). If a new Form is used it is always full screen and width\height do not work. Such a large dalog is not good.

    Is there no way a second Form can be resized?
    Is there a way to use API calls to produce a popup window with controls in Modal mode?

    Well thank you both, I don't know how I missed that, except I wasn't looking for Pane.
    I must comment that this forum seems to bring out the best. Often similar forums being asked 'stupid questions' results in rudeness or sarcasm.
    Thanks

    In Cableguy's input panel if you add

    Code:
    Sub txt1_LostFocus
       txt1.focus
    End Sub
    Then it will act like a modal dialogue box and not allow the user to do anything else until it is closed

    EDIT: Probably obvious but for completeness I should have mentioned for Erels' example
    Code:
    Sub txtName_LostFocus
       txtName.focus
    End Sub
    also makes a modal dialog box.

    EDIT EDIT: Only works on the desktop - not the device!
