That's fantastic! I use kdialog myself on linux, and had to find a
compatible method for Windows. It has occurred to me that Emacs itself
uses popups, but I'm not sure how...

I can't take credit for figuring out how to get the agenda to do the
popups, I just adapted that from another post here.

Glad you enjoyed it!
