As Revolution mimics HyperCard regarding to the standard dialogs,  
there is no built-in dialog as the one you suggest.
On the other hand, Rev allows you to build any substack that will be  
the exact dialog you need.

As for having a field that allows to enter a password, you'll find  
many examples on RevOnline and you might be interested in some  
tutorials you'll find on my website:
. How to Display and Manage Ask Dialogs
. How to Display and Manage Answer Dialogs
. How to Ask for a Password

You will access these tutorials through "Tutorials Picker" a free  
plugin that interfaces with the So Smart Software website in order to  
display all available tutorials stacks directly from the web or you  
can download every tutorial directly.
You will find it by going to
Revolution/Plugins or Tutorials section.
