Newbie-Homemade Dialog Box needed

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

B4X:
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
B4X:
Sub txtName_LostFocus
   txtName.focus
End Sub
also makes a modal dialog box.

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