dialog box
Last modified: Wednesday, December 04, 2002 

A box that appears on a display screen to present information or request input. Typically, dialog boxes are temporary -- they disappear once you have entered the requested information.

In the Macintosh and Microsoft Windows interfaces, there is a convention that any menu option followed by ellipsis points (... ) will, when selected, bring up a dialog box. Options without ellipsis points are executed directly.
