I have an application that alerts clients to certain events via a pop up box and also via emails.  I need the pop up box to pop up but i need the single threaded application to continue working even though the pop up box has fired and the user hasn't closed it.  my boss said there was something called a 'mogel or mobil' way to make a message box so that this was possible.  But he didn't have any more information.  Does anyone else know?

you need a non-modal message box, but you will need to make the message box by yourself. Will look for an example.

display a form with no borders and it will look just like a messagebox

Its a modeless dialogbox. but in C# you can do it following way:

create a new form.
set the styles of the form as you wanted (normally just for popup box, you can set following properties)
MaximizeBox=false
MiniMizeBox=false
ShowInTaskBar=false

call form1.show(); //which will open a modeless form which is your requirement

You can use a custom message box like this:

create a message box and call it with Show() instead of ShowDialog()
