Greetings,

Does anyone know if it is possible to enlarge the font size, spacing, or the size of the resulting input box to make the results easier on the eyes?

strResponse = InputBox(strMessage, "Select Data").   When I keep the number of items in the folder that is is displaying to 5 or under, it shows with no problem.  I have time where I need to have 10 items in the folder the InputBox is drawing from.   All of the items Fit, but the Font is small and the selections are scrunched together.  What I am look to do is be able to adjust the appearance of the box as the need arrises.


strResponse = InputBox(strMessage, "Select Trainer")

i don't think that you will be able to do that honnestly.

You could redefine the font as specified here, but not "on the fly" as you need.
