Dialog opening dialog?

Is it possible for a dialog to open another one without closing (ie running execute or cancelling) the first?

 

I need this because my first dialog has a list of steps of an operation to execute and an “add step” button.  Pressing add lets you configure the new step to add to the operation.  Unfortunately, opening the new dialog closes the first one ...

 

I currently have a workaround where the closing second dialog relaunches the first but it looks ugly in the UI (big delay sometimes).

 

Any ideas out there?

 

Thanks!

Did you ever get an answer or figure it out? Would love to know. I want to do the same thing and when I searched all I find is this unanswered question.

It's not possible.  A command consists of a single command dialog.  To get another dialog to appear you need to execute the command it's associated with.  Only one command can run at a time so running the other command terminates the currently running command.
