Quick simple VBS question

What are the commands in VBS to pop open a message box requesting an input that can then be inserted into a string for use in the rest of the script?

Like a box that opens and states "please enter IP address" then once entered, and submitted, it is inserted into the strIPADDRESS.

Hi mike1572,

VBScript's function is InputBox():

InputBox(prompt[, title][, default][, xpos][, ypos][, helpfile, context])
SecureCRT's method is Prompt():

crt.Dialog.Prompt(message [, title [, default [, isPassword ]]])
More complete documentation for SecureCRT's method is found in the Scripting / Script Objects Reference / Dialog Object topic in SecureCRT's Help file.
