Hi

How can i include my company name to a message box from a vbscript ?

Here is my script:
set s=getobject("winmgmts:root\cimv2")
sQuery="select * from win32_process where name='iexplore.exe'"
set q=s.execquery(sQuery)

If q.Count > 0 Then 
msgbox "Maintenance: Close Internet Explorer bla bla bla."
 
Do until q.count=0
    wscript.sleep 5000
    set q=s.execquery(sQuery)
    msgbox "still open please close..."
Loop
msgbox "Internet Explorer closed, thanks. Starting to update, have a nice day!"

Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
 
end if

Open in new window


I would like to have my Message box like this (below). Is it possible ?

So in your example use...

msgbox "Maintenance: Close Internet Explorer bla bla bla." , 0, "My Company Name"

Change the line where you call the message box here:

Dim strMbox
strMbox = "."

strMbox = MsgBox("Here is the text",0,"Title")

Open in new window


For different kinds of message box values check this out:

MsgBox "Maintenance: Close Internet Explorer bla bla bla.",,"Your Comany Name Here"

MsgBox "Internet Explorer closed, thanks. Starting to update, have a nice day!",,"Your Comany Name Here"

General sytax:

MsgBox Prompt, [Buttons]. [Title], [HelpFile], [Context]

Why, when I have already answered a question correctly with ALL the information needed, do people insist on posting additional posts with EXACTLY the same information and nothing additional?
