hello there,
I have a little app that checks file but for some reason if a file is being used it shows a little msgbox saying file in use.. I leave this app running and when I come back I usually find about 30 little windows of msgbox.
is there anything that can close the last msgbox before making a new one to prevent flood?

Another method would be to create a global variable that you set when the msgbox is opened and cleared when you close it.  If the variable is set, then either don't open a new window, or close the msgbox (using the code above) and create a new one.
