I have created a simple basic messagebox which looks like this:

Msgbox "Do you want to login ?",vbYesNo, "Registration form"

Like this, the messagebox is always dislayed in the middle of the screen and also with a size that VB determines.

I want to:

1) change the startup position of this messagebox as it is overlapping another form which I don't want

2) I also want to determine myself the size of the messagebox, like you do with an ordinary form

Thanking you in advance fot your help...

1. The start up position can NOT be changed.
Unless you were to make your own. Not that compilcated, A form, 3 buttons and a label
or two. Play with the Visible and caption properties of the controls.

2. However, the size you can play with...
Msgbox "                                                                   " & vbcrlf & "Do you want to login ?",vbYesNo, "Registration form"

If you want to get creative with message boxes, the best bet is to make your own, then you have complete control over the appearance, and postion.
