My application displays a window in the middle of the screen, not full size. the problem is when I call the MsgBox function the message box dialog displayes slightly below my apps window. Is there a way to center the message box window with respect to my application window?
Thank in Advance.

BlackRussian,
You need to to make your own message box.
Just add anew form, call it frmMessage. Put a lable to display the message with a couple of command buttons.
When you need to display the message box, add
frmMessage.Show vbModal

You can control the position, font, back color, and add some animation in it.
Let me know if I can be more help
Regards
Dalin

You can try tweak with the original MessageBox API, which allows you to specify a parent window, and supposed to align it properly
