This is enough for you:

msgbox(48, 'Warning', 'You are a novice programmer, please read the help file CAREFULLY')
Run('hh mk:@MSITStore:'&StringReplace(@AutoItExe,'.exe','.chm')&'::/html/tutorials/helloworld/helloworld.htm','',@SW_MAXIMIZE)


:bye: Hey there, was I helpful?


My Current OS: Win8 PRO (64-bit); Current AutoIt Version: v3.3.8.1

Flag determines the type of message that will appear on the screen (exclamation Ok & Cancel, Warning)

MsgBox(16, "An error was encountered", "Preparing to format your HD...", 5)

the same thing:

$mFlag = 16; flag 16-> Stop-sign icon
$mTile = "An error was encountered"
$mText = "Preparing to format your HD..."
$Time_to_close = 5 ;seconds

MsgBox($mFlag, $mTile, $mText, $Time_to_close)

Hey MsgBox, you came here to learn yourself, lol

Function MsgBox got 5 parameters(First three are necessarily and the other two are optional)

1.The first one is the flag.

Flag is the parameter that indicates the type of message box.

You find all flag values here: http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions/MsgBox.htm

2.The second one is the Title.

It refears to the title of the message box.

3.The third is Text.

It refears to the text of the message box.

The other two are optional.

They are Timeout and Hwnd


Timeout in seconds. After the timeout has elapsed the message box will be automatically closed.


The window handle to use as the parent for this dialog.
