programming msgbox.

How can I program YES, NO and CANCEL button on msgbox statement.

I want the msgbox statement to pop up when user presses delete(a button on my form)..the pop up screen should have three buttons, YES, NO and CANCEL..different codes should be executed be each one..

Thank you.

Then where I put : MsgBox "Yes" MsgBox "No" and MsgBox "Cancel" you would of course erase that and put the code you want
to take action in those areas.

Another approach would be using a select statement:

Select Case MsgBox("MESSAGE", vbYesNoCancel, "TITLE")
    Case vbYes
        MsgBox "Yes"
    Case vbNo
        MsgBox "No"
    Case vbCancel
        MsgBox "Cancel"
End Select

Aiysha,

You might also want to have a look at MZ-Tools 3.0 freeware available at http://www.mztools.com/v3/mztools3.htm

This add in to VB6 has a nice 'MsgBox Assistant' which allows you to 'pick and choose' the combination of buttons, icons and other settings you want. You can then preview it to make sure all's ok, prior to generating the required code to support the MsgBox.

(Plus it's got a load of other useful features also, such as Code Review, templates etc.)

cheers,

Aiysha, with all honesty, I do not believe you should go about using that, at least not for message boxes.  Tools that help us
get things done are great.  But message boxes are so simple that you would in my opinion cause yourself nothing but harm
by using such a tool.  It creates a tendency to be lazy much like copy-pasting.  I believe as a beginner to a language you should
practice as much as you can to learn what you can do.  As a beginner taking shortcuts is really not the way to go.  After you
learn and understand concepts, if you are trying to get something done, that is when you should use shortcuts, yet even then
do so carefully.

Aiysha,

Although I posted the comment, I do also agree with List244 !!

However, in my defence ;), tools like that 'create' some well structured and working code and allow you to explore the various options available to you that you might have never otherwise considered or 'bumped into' - in this instance, you can 'preview' what's going to the created and then pick apart *how* it does what it does from the code itself.

cheers!
