Error Dialogue on a Timer

I am writing software that will not be constantly monitored.  On various errors, I am popping up a dialogue box which describes the error and asks if the user wants to "Retry" (button 1) the previous operation or "Quit" (button 2).  I would like to show that dialogue box for a few seconds, then automatically choose the "Retry" option and close the dialogue box if no user input is detected.  Does anyone have an example of a good way to do that?  Thanks.

The default dialogue box won't do what you need.

 

I would just do a simple VI with an event structure with 10s or something wired into the "timeout".
