Prompting the user in Filemaker Pro

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I am trying to write a filemaker script.  How do I prompt a user to enter some text that I can store into a variable. Seems really simple, but I see nothing in the script editor that says "Prompt User".  

My vision is a pop-up window with a text entry field and OK and Cancel buttons.  the user types in text and presses "OK".
