I have done a time-consuming run and calculation. After many hours ( about 7 hours!), the black color which shows that the cell is evaluating, turn into gray and a strange text appears like this :

(Dialog) Input[157]:= (* my code in the cell *)

Does anyone know what it is and why this is happening ?!

This means that you have interrupted the calculation. Most likely you did not do this through using the Dialog function but by using the Evaluation -> Interrupt Evaluation item or accidentally pressing the corresponding shortcut key. You can resume by evaluating Return[]. –  Szabolcs Apr 23 '14 at 19:55
    
@ Szabolcs : As you said, I haven't used Dialog function and it the notebook was evaluated by Evaluating function. You mean that there is no error in my code and it was just a coincidence ?! Because it's a long code with a huge load of lists of number! –  Shellp Apr 24 '14 at 6:32

This is a clarification to those who came to Mathematica since version 10: in v10 the Interrupt Evaluation menu item was removed, though the shortcut key (Option-Command-. on Mac) still works. –  Szabolcs Apr 10 at 16:55
