define size of msgbox

Recommended Posts

hey autoiters

i have a ascii picture that i want to add to a message box. the picture is 50 characters wide, and it gets all screwed up when i run the msgbox. is there a way to resize the actual box? weather its pixels or whatever.

also, doing this has made me realize i dont know how to have a line break within scite. this is just one continuous line. i didnt look to hard to find a way, and im not really worried about it, but if anybody know the answer off the top of their head that would be cool.

heres my code,

MsgBox (48, "The laughing man",  @LF & @LF & @LF & @LF & @LF & @LF & @LF & @LF & @LF & @LF & @LF & "                      `.:/osyhhdddddhhyyo+/-.                              " & @LF & "                  ./oydhyo+/:+-......--:/osydhy+:`                         " & @LF & "              `:ohdy+:.`s. y/ysh-yy-h+o:++`+--/ohdy+.                      " & @LF & "            -ohhs:`./.  +s /sooh:ss:hs+ysy/yh:s: .+ydy/`                   " & @LF & "          :ydy/`./+/so: `+` ..--ohho-../+-o+ooo -o:`.+hho.                 " & @LF & "        :yds-`/y:yss-/..:+shhhdddddddhhhyo/-`-`.hyho:s-/hdo.               " & @LF & "      .sdy- /ss+s/-.:ohhddddddhhyyyyhhddddddhs/.`+/osy/.`/hh/              " & @LF & "     :hh/`:++oso.-ohddddhs+:-``````````-/oshdddhs:`-oo+ys`.sds.            " & @LF & "    +dh- oyss+`-sddddho-`                 ``:ohdddy:`/soos/ /dh-           " & @LF & "   +dy-  //o:.oddddy/`                        `/yddds.`+-.:+/:dh-          " & @LF & "  /dy`/o+o.`-hdddh/`                            `/hddh/ -+:.+.:dh.         " & @LF & " -dh.`ssoo.:hddds.                                .yddd+ `+oso:+dy         " & @LF & " yd+ -o+s:-hdddo`                                  `sddd/ ++:-``yd/        " & @LF & "-dh``syo+`yddddsoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooosdddhoooossoydhoo+:.   " & @LF & "odo-+oos.:dddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddhs- " & @LF & "hd:`osss -:::::::::::::://:::::::::::::::://:::::::://///////////////sdddh:" & @LF & "dd- .--- osss:       .+ssso:`          .+ssso:`                       /dddh" & @LF & "dd- syoo hddd+      -+:...-++         -o:...-/+`                      /dddh" & @LF & "hd: +/ys yddds  ----:-------::--------:-------::----  --------------:ohddh:" & @LF & "odo /o/o`/dddd` odddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd+ -dddddddddddddddddhs- " & @LF & "-dh``sss+`hdddo `yddddyooooooooooooooooooooooyddddy` sdddoshsysohdhso+:.   " & @LF & " yd+ -oss-:dddd/ .ydddh/`                  `/hdddy. oddd+`+sos.`hd/        " & @LF & " -dd-:ysoo./dddd+``ohdddy/.`            `./ydddho``odddo`--``- ody         " & @LF & "  /dh-:o+/.`/hddds. -shdddhs+:-.````.-:+yddddhs- -yddd+`.++/. /dh.         " & @LF & "   +dy..-/oo--yddddo.`-+yhddddddhhhhddddddhy+.`-odddh:`o+-.o//dh-          " & @LF & "    +dh:/:osy+`/hdddds:``-/oyhhhhddhhhhyo/.`./sdddh+:.-osy:.+dh-           " & @LF & "     :hd+`:+-`/+-/yddddhs+:.``..----..``.:+yddddy+.-yy+``/:sds.            " & @LF & "      .sdy:  yss+o--+yhdddddhyssoooossyhddddhho:..:soss-`+hh/              " & @LF & "        :yds:.-/ysso+:.:oshhdddddddddddhhyo/-./:sho/s``+hdo.               " & @LF & "          :ydy/.-:/yy: so-/:-:://///:::.:::oss/y/+/`-ohho.                 " & @LF & "            -ohds/.-. :ss/hs:hsh- y-`hsosoh-yy-/:-+ydy/`                   " & @LF & "              `:ohdyo/-.`-++:ohs- y: sss.+:.`-+shdy+.                      " & @LF & "                  ./oyddyso/::--..+:-/+/+oyhdhy+:`                         " & @LF & "                      `.:/osyhhdddddhhyyo+/-.                              ")

To stretch one line of code on multiple lines, use underscores everywhere you want a new line.

MsgBox(1, "Multiple Lines Example", "This is an example" & _
                                           " of code on" & _
                                           " multiple lines!")

awesome! now only if i could figure out how to resize the messagebox

Check out the Extended Message Box by Melba23. It's a message box with a lot more options.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.
