What is it called when you force the user to deal with that window before they can move on?

As the title says I want to find out how to make a window pop up that the user has to deal with first. When the user tries to ignore that window of the application and continue clicking on another window of the same application it refuses to acknowledge input. (And probably makes that little sound that programs make to let the user know.) Just about every application I have ever used does this at some point so I'm sure there must be a term for it, but I don't know what it is, so I'm having troubling finding out how to do it.
