Formatting a MsgBox()

Recommended Posts

WiseGuy

Hello and thank you for reading my question.

I have made a small program that automates basically a bunch of clicking and towards that end I have made it without a GUI. The functions are activated through the press of a hotkey. Now due to the "lack" of a GUI I want to show a message box when my application starts that tells you what button does what. So I want to format it like the following for clarity:

|-------------------------------------------------|

| Hello welcome to my program: |

| |

| Button W does this |

| Button X does that |

| Button Y does such |

| Button Z does so |

| [OK] |

|-------------------------------------------------|

Can I achieve this in AutoIt (So that my message box looks like this)?

PS: Props for ASCII art? :oops: Ok apperantly ascii art isnt allowed lol

At the others, I've taken a good look at Melba's msgbox but it is a bit overkill for me.
