The best way to answer that question is with a resource:

l-style#3896

The Microsoft Style Manual .chm file. This is an online help file that
explains the windows standards for naming screens, windows, mouse
actions, etc. Very Useful.

Subject: Name for type for screen

Hi, guys...I need a name for a type of screen.

I'm documenting a web portal and my application has three type of
screen.

The primary screen is the full page web page with numerous
fields,labels, input boxes, etc. In the documentatin, I use the term
"GUI".

When the user clicks certain buttons, they get a small secondary window
where they enter the requested input. This I call a "dialog".

The question...certain actions result in a window with a value that a
userr needs, such as a reply for a temporary password. The user does no
"conversation" with the application, just receives information and
clicks a Close button.

It is a name for this type of screen that I'm looking for your
suggestions.

Thanks
