How can I get Delphi to wait for a form to close before continuing to execute code in another form?
My program has to search through a CSV file line by line and if a unique item is found, another form needs to be opened asking the user for more information on this item to store in a file before continuing to search the CSV file. I have browsed around looking for an answer and the only thing that I can find is showmodal which closes the pop-up form after it's finished. I need to keep the form open in case there is another unique item. I have also tried having a repeat, until loop which repeats until the value of a certain variable is changed by the pop-up form, allowing the program to continue when the pop-up form is hidden. This, however, does not seem to work and causes the pop-up form to be blank and unusable. Help please!

This is what called "Modal Window"
Hence it is displayed by .ShowModal method.
if ItemFound then begin user_info := false; user_prompt := CreateMessageDialog(... 'answer me!' ); try user_choice := user_prompt.ShowModal(); if IsPositiveResult(user_choice) then begin user_Var_1 := Trim(user_prompt.Edit1.Text); user_Var_2 := user_prompt.ListBox1.ItemIndex; .... user_info := True; end. finally user_prompt.Destroy; end; if user_info then begin ... end; end;
