How about if you will use

PopupManager API's

http://help.adobe.com/en_US/FlashPlatform/reference/actionscript/3/mx/managers/PopUpManager.html

PopUpManager.createPopUp(), and PopUpManager.centerPopUp() methods

Did you try to write a code before asking me?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<s:Application xmlns:fx="http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009" 
			   xmlns:s="library://ns.adobe.com/flex/spark"

			   width="100%" height="100%" creationComplete="onComplete()">

			<![CDATA[
                import mx.containers.Panel;
                import mx.managers.PopUpManager;
			    

                protected function onComplete():void
                {
                    var panel:Panel = PopUpManager.createPopUp(this, Panel) as Panel;
                    panel.width = 500;
                    panel.height = 400;
                    panel.x = (width - panel.width) / 2;
                    panel.y = (height - panel.height) / 2;
