Response from Message Box

I have an app with a main window that I need to display a sort of Message Box to the user to confirm whether to continue with a particular operation. The Message Box is created in a function that is called, the function defines the window and its components, populates a text box from the contents of a function argument, and awaits the user to select one of two buttons..

At the end of the function a call to 'window:show()' is used to display the Message Box... but control returns to the calling code immediately. The Message Box window is defined as being modal, which helps to keep the user from clicking off it and trying to continue without responding... that's good, however, I am unable to return to the calling code which button the user chose.

Is there a recommended way to do this?
