Dialog is probably better, because it has some good defaults, and it has a
blocking run() method.

Yes. Why wouldn't it be?

What do you mean by "child"? Maybe you need set_transient_for(), or to use a
particular Window constructor that takes a parent window.

You would need to explain what you are trying and what you are seeing?

Not really. What more do you need?
