ShowList port to Transcript

While porting a HyperCard stack (with accelerating success!) I ran into
a hurdle with an xfcn supplied with PowerTools. I suspect Transcript
supplies the functionality, but haven't been able to find it.
Showlist accepts as one of the parameters a return delimited list and
shows them in a dialog box. (Other parameters are the prompt, buttons,
and some other options.) The result of the command is the selection
when the OK button is clicked. I create the list earlier in the handler
from card data since it can change between handler calls.
I've looked in the Transcript dialog and palette commands, but haven't
found anything comparable.
In a nutshell, I want to display a dialog or palette with a scrolling
list and select an item for the script to continue with. At a minimum
it must have a prompt, list, and OK and Cancel buttons.

(I did check back a few months in the archives. Sorry if this has been
discussed recently or is obvious to a casual observer.)
