All you need is...

Result := ShowModal;

Somewhere in your code of the modalform...you set ModalResult to MrOk
like when the user hit's the Ok button.

Also your form's visible property needs to be set to false.

Your Result := (ShowModal = mrOk) line is correct, since you want your function to return a boolean. My guess is that you have already used the show method on you form.

I understand the confusion here, the Result := (ShowModal = mrOK) actually calls the ShowModal function for the form, you do not need to call it before.

I guess this is what you are doing:

procedure TMyForm.callMyDialogue;
begin
  // DO SOME STUFF
  MyDialogue.Execute;
end;

function TMyDialogue.Execute : Boolean;
begin
  ShowModal;
  // DO SOME STUFF
  Result := (ShowModal = mrOK);
end;

If this is the case, you need to remove the first call to ShowModal. That will solve the problem.
