You didn't bother to read what Nick posted very carefully. He pointed out the _request() option to the display command which takes user input and puts it into a macro. To address your larger question -- yes you can do what you want with dialog boxes -- creating an interactive system. Many of the built-in dialogs can do just that if you keep submitting different inputs.
