Use ShowDialog() on an instance of the form.

eg.

x.ShowDialog();

Free Tool: Subnet Calculator

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

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
