just use a form
-set the borderstyle to bsDialog
-place your controls and buttons
-assign a modalResult to the buttons

and use it in your code like

with TMyNewDialog.Create(self) do
begin
  result := showmodal;
  if result = mrOK then
  //.. read out your edits here
     something := DialogEdit1.text;
  //free it
  release;
end;

just as suggestion

Even easier. Use InputQuery (ij the Dialogs unit). There are a few versions for strings, integers, reals etc.

I give u a example to solve.

This example uses a button and a label on the form. When the user clicks the button, the input box displays. If the user chooses OK, the string that appears in the edit box of the dialog box displays as the caption of the label on the form. If the user chooses Cancel, the dialog box closes and the caption of the label remains unchanged:

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  NewString: string;
  ClickedOK: Boolean;
begin
  NewString := 'Default String';
  Label1.Caption := NewString;
  ClickedOK := InputQuery('Input Box', 'Prompt', NewString);
  if ClickedOK then            { NewString contains new input string }
    Label1.Caption := 'The new string is ''' + NewString + '''';
end;
