Use ShowDialog() on an instance of the form.

eg.

x.ShowDialog();

What are the features that are not in the standard MessageBox and that you want to have in yours?

From the question.
I have already created the form.

All is required is then a ShowDialog so it shows and blocks the form displaying it from working until the custom message box is closed.

Thks
i have found the solution
my solution is in below
public static bool Show(string content, string title, MessageBoxButtons button, MessageBoxIcon icon)
        {
            CustomMessageBox customMessageBox = new CustomMessageBox();
            customMessageBox.lblTitle.Text = title;
            customMessageBox.lbMessage.Text = content;
            customMessageBox.ShowDialog();
      
            return false;
        }

Open in new window

CustomMessageBox.Show("print PDF fails: \n" + ex.Message, "Print PFD",
                    MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Error);

Open in new window
