No, you have to get familiar with Dialog Boxes.

Dialog Boxes can contain all types of controls not only buttons. You have to build your own Dialog Box with an Edit Control (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/bb775458%28v=vs.85%29.aspx). There isn't a predefined Dialog called 'InputBox'.

It seems to me that you need a win32 assembly programming tutorial. There are many, it's simple to find them with your favourite search engine. But I'am sorry, I do not know one that's based on NASM.

Although not a tutorial, per se, the NASMX package contains commented examples which include creation and use of dialog boxes which are located in the demos directory.  It should be easy to take an example and modify it to your liking.
