I would like to impement something like the following into the
function of a button which needs the returned value for further

  InputField[Dynamic[dyn], String],
  Button["Ok", DialogReturn[dyn]]

Now I encounter two problems:
i) calling DialogInput or CreateDialog whithin a button causes my
Mathematica session to crash.
ii) if this would work I also have the problem that the browse button
won`t work because the evaluation in the main notebook is halted.

Any Suggestions?
Best wishes, Jakob
