Message Box positioning

Using VB6 with SP3.  Is there a way to specify the position of a message box?  This one pastes right on top of something I wish to see too.  I don't want to move that.  I want to move the message box. -- Norm

Create your own msgbox!
Just add a form, call it frmMsg.
Use labels to show your message, add command button...
then use
frmMsg.show vbmodal

The nice thing is that you can specify font, color, size, position, even add some graphics...

As far as I know the MsgBox always centers in the screen. An alternative is to write your own form that behaves like a messagebox, but which you handle yourself completely. A lot of work, so it's probably easier to just let the msgbox pop up at the center and then move it away if you want to see what's underneath it.
Not much help, but like I said, I don't think it can be positioned.

It is certainly possible to move the messagebox, but you would need async processing, some API, in one word a lot of stuff.

I agree with TheMek that it would probably be easier to develop your own messagebox...
