#2944 closed Bug (Fixed)

MsgBox timeout not working

Reported by: richard.hopton@… Owned by: BrewManNH
Milestone: Component: Documentation
Version: Other Severity: None
Keywords: msgbox timeout Cc:



When I use either $MB_SERVICE_NOTIFICATION or $MB_DEFAULT_DESKTOP_ONLY flags (or the decimal/hex equivalents) for a msgbox, the timeout doesn't work.


#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>
MsgBox($MB_SERVICE_NOTIFICATION, "Title", "Text",10)

Does not timeout.

I am running Win7 32bit with the latest public release ( and have tried the most recent Beta ( but no joy.

  • Component changed from AutoIt to Documentation
  • Version deleted

As stated in the thread this was originally brought up in:

This type of modal setting for a MsgBox can not have a time out in the message box command itself, it just won't work. This is a Windows issue and not an AutoIt one. I am changing this to a documentation issue for the help file rather than a bug, as it is not a bug, just a Windows limitation.
