VBScript - Custom buttons on msgbox

Posted on 2009-02-09

 want a message box to pop up when users log on to Windows, and I want to display a message and give them three buttons to click on, and action them based on what button they click. Is it possible to have customized buttons to display whatever text you want on the buttons apart from the standard "Yes/No/Cancel/OK"?

    Unfortunately, no.  The vbscript MsgBox function is limited to a very few built-in buttons.  This page lists the available choices.

    Just curious,

    Why would you want this?

    You can write your own program with a form to display whatever buttons you like, after they log on.

    A form is pretty much the only way to simulate a msgbox with custom buttons
