Which dialog box? Open, Save, Color, Folder and Font dialogs should all be available in the toolbox under the "Dialogs" heading.

There is not preset dialogbox, you have to create your own. Theres a quick guide to creating your own dialog box here:

If you are talking about MessageBox - you don't need to select it from the toolbox.  You just write in your code:

MessageBox.Show("your message", other options)

There is number of overloads for the static Show method. You may indicate buttons, icins, default button etc.

Just two examples (both show OK button:

            MessageBox.Show("Hello");
            MessageBox.Show("Hello","My Dialog Caption", MessageBoxButtons.OK);

A dialogbox is just a form which is displayed modally.

MyForm frm = new MyForm();
frm.ShowDialog();   //Code halts here until the form is shown


OR
MyForm frm; //NOT local in the function
....
frm = new MyForm();
frm.Show();  //Code continues after here, even when form is shown

Just to clarify what AndyAinscow just told:

You may create your own dialog - just by creating a new form with a label and a button, as you wanted above.

To show the dialog you just call myCustomDialogForm.ShowDialog()

But! ShowDialog does not accept any results. It means you need to provide some custom code to set text on the label on the form. E.g., you may have a method like:

myCustomDialogForm.SetDialogMessage(string text){}


The you just call:

myCustomDialogForm.SetDialogMessage("Hello");
myCustomDialogForm.ShowDialog();

//Code halts here until the form is shown
should be
//Code halts here until the form is closed
