is there anyway to change the button order on a message dlg?

i have tried changing the order by switching the order of the buttons in the array but with no luck, anything short of writing a seperate forum?

The order is not changeable. You also should not show your own from with another order.
You will kill the usability of your application. The users expect it the standard way.

Have a look at the "Interface Hall of Shame" http://www.iarchitect.com/mshame.htm to learn why.

i current order is killing the usabiliry of our application

We have a question popup saying 'is the reporter anonymous?' 99% of the time the answer is no, but with the default on yes, the user has to change the selection where they are wanting to just hit enter (and some are) meaning that the incorrect answer is given.

We want to either change the order or change the default on or the other.

Use the Windows.MessageBox function. It allows to set the default button.

Also read at the "Interface Hall of Shame". Your question is the usability problem. Try rephrasing it. Try asking "Enter reporter name?".
