Advice on Input Box For Message Box

Recommended Posts

This small message box script works fine, but what I want to do is bring up an Input box in which the message you want to display can be entered.

Nice and basic but my questions are:

What happens if the user uses a load of carrage returns, and is it possible to compile the script automatically afterwards or will that have to be done manually ?

Code [ so far ] - FYI is as follows

$__msgbox = MsgBox(64, 'St Johns Network Message Of The Day', _
      'Test message for the St Johns Network Message Of The Day Program.' & @CRLF & _
      @CRLF & _
      'Matt - IT Tech' & @CRLF & _
      @CRLF & _
      'Click on OK to close this box.')
if ($__msgbox = 1) Then
   Exit
EndIf

I would do a file FileWrite($path,'MsgBox(64, '"Title",' & StringReplace(InputBox(),'@CRLF', @CRLF) & ')')

Run($autoitcompilerpath & ' "' & $path & '"')

FileCopy
