Skip using the answer dialog and build your own.

I create a fake dialog by having a full stack window transparent button that covers the entire card. On top of that I have the image of  a dialog. In that I have fields and buttons. Until they deal with the fake dialog, the transparent button prevents them from interacting with anything else on the screen. It's a hack but it works.
