Msgbox UDF

7 posts in this topic

Is there any msgbox UDFs where I can set the X and Y coordinates of appearing? If so, could you give a link? (since I couldn't find)

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.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

MsgBox is a blocking function, using a WinMove after a MsgBox will not move that MsgBox. Take a look at the script i have posted above

You only found the _ExtMsgBoxSet function which sets the various options for the ExtMsgBox - if you look a little further into the UDF you find the _ExtMsgBox function which actually displays the GUI at any point you desire. :)

And WinMove will not work on the normal MsgBox as the function is blocking and so you cannot affect the GUI while it is displayed. ;)
