For a MessageBox you just include a carriage return character in the string (#$0D) eg :
     "This is the first line"#$0D"And this the second"
(Hopefully I have the syntax right!)
I have never tried it with a button! Try it and let us know.

If $0D doesn't work (it should), you could also try $0a.

#$0D (#13 is the same, and easier) is "Carriage return", and #$0A (#10) is "Line feed"; if the don't work alone, maybe the combination of both (#13#10) does.

Yes we have to answer, but you have to decide who's answer is correct. If I answer I block for all others, so one adds comments. The questioner then posts a message which says "Thanks x - your solution was correct/the best/the funniest/and so forth" and then x posts an answer which reads "Thanks"

Thanks.
