is there a way to run an AppleScript dialog as a specific emplacement? like you would do for an app using

tell application "System Events"
    set position of first window of application process "Slack" to {5724, 0, 6967, 647}
end tell

the dialog example:

set myDialog to {"Demo", "Demo two", "Demo Trois"}
set selectedResolution to choose from list myDialog with title "title here" with prompt "message here" default items "Deny Abuse"

Not with basic vanilla AppleScript as the choose from list command creates a modal dialog window and further processing of the script is on hold until you respond to.

There may be a way with AppleScriptObjC to create the dialog window programmatically and tell it where to appear on the screen, but that is not my area of expertise.
