Msgbox On Top

5 posts in this topic

I would like a msgbox to pop up that is on top of all other windows. I can find info on ONTOP for other windows, but not for msgbox, or even if it is possible.

$return_Value = MsgBox(4,"Title ON TOP", "This message is on top of all other windows",10)

Thanks,

$return_Value = MsgBox(4,"Title ON TOP", "This message is on top of all other windows",10)

So if you wanted an OK and Cancel button (flag of '1') you would add 1 to 262144 to get:

$return_Value = MsgBox(262145, "Title ON TOP", "This message is on top of all other windows", 10)
Select
    Case $return_Value = 1
        ConsoleWrite("You pressed OK" & @CRLF)
    Case $return_Value = 2
        ConsoleWrite("You pressed CANCEL" & @CRLF)
    Case $return_Value = -1
        ConsoleWrite("The msgbox timed out" & @CRLF)
    Case Else
        ConsoleWrite("something else happened" & @CRLF)
EndSelect

[u]Helpful tips:[/u]If you want better answers to your questions, take the time to reproduce your issue in a small "stand alone" example script whenever possible. Also, make sure you tell us 1) what you tried, 2) what you expected to happen, and 3) what happened instead.[u]Useful links:[/u]BrettF's update to LxP's "How to AutoIt" pdfValuater's Autoit 1-2-3 Download page for the latest versions of Autoit and SciTE[quote]<glyph> For example - if you came in here asking "how do I use a jackhammer" we might ask "why do you need to use a jackhammer"<glyph> If the answer to the latter question is "to knock my grandmother's head off to let out the evil spirits that gave her cancer", then maybe the problem is actually unrelated to jackhammers[/quote]
