Additional text in messagebox?

Recommended Posts


Hi folks...Is there a way to add additional text in a msgbox? I'm not talking about the normal text. I was thinking in terms of "GUICtrlCreateLabel"...For example, lets say my normal text gets displayed in the messagebox...I would then like to have additional text to be displayed UNDER the "ok" button...just want to know if its possible.

As the MessageBox used by AutoIt is produced by the Windows API, there is no way to modify it yourself. :huggles:

However, you might like to look at ExtMsgBox UDF that I wrote to replace the MsgBox command. Although it does not do quite what you want, you could very easily modify it do do so.

Give it a go and ask for help in the ExtMsgBox topic if you have problems. :D

Read the help file, and try the example scripts under GuiCreate(), GuiCtrlCreateLabel(), and GuiCtrlCreateButton().
