I found a nice EE article that works fine except I need a Label to appear on the newly created message form.

Link:     http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Programming_Languages/C_Sharp/Q_21752115.html?query=close+messagebox&topics=327

Code:  
            Form popup = new Form();
            popup.Text = "A popup form";
            popup.FormBorderStyle = FormBorderStyle.Sizable;
            popup.Size = new Size(200, 200);
            popup.Show();


Label:   Label label1 = new System.Windows.Forms.Label();
            label1.AutoSize = true;
            label1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(57, 30);
            label1.Name = "label1";
            label1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(35, 13);
            label1.TabIndex = 1;
            label1.Text = "label1";
            label1.Show();

Try this code:


            // First create the form object
            Form popup = new Form();

            //Create the label and set it's properties
            Label label1 = new System.Windows.Forms.Label();
            label1.AutoSize = true;
            label1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(57, 30);
            label1.Name = "label1";
            label1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(35, 13);
            label1.TabIndex = 1;
            label1.Text = "label1";

            //Add the label to the form
            popup.Controls.Add(label1);

            //Set the form's properties            
            popup.Text = "A popup form";
            popup.FormBorderStyle = FormBorderStyle.Sizable;
            popup.Size = new Size(200, 200);

            //Show the form
            popup.Show();

You can add any control in the same way.

The code is basically the same that would be generated by the VS IDE for a similar form. But this code is hidden in a Partial class in VS 2005.

Feel free to ask any other questions regarding the code.

Good luck,

Yes, TheLearnedOne, I did but it's not C# code.
