yeah i know ALL that stuff, but what i am asking, is "for example" when you make a call to $input or $$?

it returns a result of the edit bod, or the button press depending on the case, so if you use $input and have an edit box, then $input RETURNS whatever was typed into the edit box, what i want to know is, can we do the same with a call to $dialog(whatever,whatever)

as to where, when the dialog CLOSES/YOUR done with it, it will return a value or result, as does a call to $input or $$?
