comment Meaning of message dialog icons - demand a prerequisite
I absolutely agree with this answer: Don't pester the user with dialogs, instead guide the user with an obvious flow. However, I think OP is using a workflow “User fills out form → user submits → display dialog because required field was missing → user fills out field → user submits → application starts working”. That's not quite as bad as presenting a dialog up front, but it's still not good UX.

Depending on which platform you are designing for, there might be a guide that outlines how dialogs should look. E.g. OS X, iOS, GNOME, and KDE all have a “Human Interface Guideline”, while Android and Windows have resources with less catchy names. E.g. if you're following Google's Material Design guidelines, you should rethink whether you need a dialog at all, and if you do, you shouldn't use an icon.
