    Hi!
Why don't you create a Form displaying the message in a Label
Displaying and hiding form is easy ;)

Another reason to go with TomasHelgi is that the ShowMessage and MessageDlg are modal, so until it is terminated, it won't execute the next line of code. So, even if you use your form to display the msg, it should be modalless.

Hi, thanks for the replys.
If there is no other way to handle the message of course i'll have to use the form...
I was thinking if someone has a source or a customized message dialog that can accept commands.

Show message with:

MessageDlg('I wish to do something in this time!', mtWarning, [], 0);

when all is done then close with:
var wh:HWND;
begin
  wh:=FindWindowByTitle('Warning');
  PostMessage (Wh, WM_CLOSE, 0, 0);
end;

the function for FindWindowByTitle is:

function TForm1.FindWindowByTitle(WindowTitle: string): Hwnd;
var
  NextHandle: Hwnd;
  NextTitle: array[0..260] of char;
begin
  NextHandle := GetWindow(Application.Handle, GW_HWNDFIRST);
  while NextHandle > 0 do begin
    GetWindowText(NextHandle, NextTitle, 255);
    if pos(WindowTitle, StrPas(NextTitle)) <> 0 then
    begin
      result := NextHandle;
      exit;
    end else
      NextHandle := GetWindow(NextHandle, GW_HWNDNEXT);
  end;
  result := 0;
end;
