Own Dialog Box

Hi All,

I would like to make my own "dialog box".

What I would like to have is something that is similar to the Common Dialog, but not working with files etc, it will be working with say for instance a list of people.

I would like to be able to call this form/dialog from anywhere in my app and return a name of a person from the list on that form.

something along the lines of:


f_GetName = frmNamePopup.txtName.text

I know that the above idea wont work!!! Its just a thought.

frmNamePopup has a TextBox (Text1) and a CommandButton (Command1):

' --------------------
' Form1
' --------------------
Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim result As String
    result = frmNamePopup.ShowDialog
    Label1.Caption = result
End Sub

' --------------------
' frmNamePopup
' --------------------
Public Function ShowDialog() As String
    frmNamePopup.Show vbModal
    ShowDialog = frmNamePopup.Text1.Text
End Function

Private Sub Command1_Click()
End Sub
