How do you 'prompt' or 'input' characters when writing Ti-Nspire Programs?

Im used to writing programs for the Ti-84, but my school made us switch to nspires and writing programs are completely different. how do i use input commands?

As of OS 2.1, there is a method of input involving popup boxes. The command is requeststr or request. the syntax is: Request Variable,String
Variable: what you are prompting for
String: what you are showing the user when prompting
This is the equivalent to the ti 83/ti 84 command: Input String,Variable
