Controlling MsgBox location

Recommended Posts

Hey, I am using MsgBox to show a simple yes/no dialog for the user to click on. Is there a simple way to control where this box shows up? I am running on a dual monitor system, and I would like it to show on the secondary monitor rather than right bang in the middle of the primary one.

Here's one way:

Run(@AutoItExe & ' /AutoIt3ExecuteLine "WinMove(WinWait(''MsgBox to move'', ''Testing 123''), ''Testing 123'', 0, 0)"')

MsgBox(0, "MsgBox to move", "Testing 123")

Or you could use this excellent UDF as a replacement for the MsgBox. :idea:
