MSGBOX font properties are controlled by your desktop and without API calls not directly accessable to VB.

WATY, you gots the API's for this gent?

I think the best and easier solution is rewriting a complete message box. I have coded a complete message box. If you want I can send you the code.

mark, at this moment, I don't see any way using API to change the font in a messagebox. We don't have the hand on a messagebox, it is modal once it is executed, so we could not change the properties of the messagebox.

Was wild guess Waty, you seem to have an API call for *everything* (grin).

Anyway, you can change MSGBOX fonts, etc, but only by changing the entire desktop. If you just want *your* stuff to look different from everyone elses, seems like you're SOL.

mark2150, there are a lot of API under Windows, a lot of them are very useful (take a look at the MSDN), I don't know all the APIs.
