is there anyway to have a custom result from a dialog?

instead of dialogresult.OK, dialogresult.cancel, etc,

Usage:

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        If Form1.MyShowDialog = MyResult.PasswordOK Then
            MsgBox("Password Accepted")
        Else
            MsgBox("Password Failed")
        End If
    End Sub



...and here is Form1...



Public Class Form1

    Public Enum MyResult
        PasswordOK
        PasswordInvalid
    End Enum

    Private result As Form1.MyResult

    Public ReadOnly Property MyDialogResult()
        Get
            Return result
        End Get
    End Property

    Public Shared Function MyShowDialog() As Form1.MyResult
        Dim f1 As New Form1
        f1.ControlBox = False
        f1.ShowDialog()
        Return f1.MyDialogResult
    End Function

    Private Sub btnSubmit_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnSubmit.Click
        If TextBox1.Text = "something" Then
            result = MyResult.PasswordOK
        Else
            result = MyResult.PasswordInvalid
        End If
        Me.Hide()
    End Sub

End Class
