How to you post multiple messages in the same MessageBox in AutoIt

I want to post a status message in a single box as status changes throughout the process of my code.  Here is an example

        MsgBox(48, "DB Connect", "Connecting to DB 1", 2)

      MsgBox(48, "DB Connect", "Connect to DB 2", 3)

      MsgBox(48, "DB Connect", "Connect to DB 3", 4)

      MsgBox(48, "DB Connect", "Successfully Connect to all DB", 3)

This produces 4 different messages boxes and an OK option in each one.  I would like to create a single box.  Then print the message "Connecting to DB 1", after my process completes and goes on to the next one, in the same message box just on the line below, I want to say "Connecting to DB 2", when task completes, I want to say "Connecting to DB 3" on the next line below.  Next I will show "Successfully connected to all DB's".  I do not really need an OK option at all.  I just want to know that I successfully executed the task.  The task may not be connecting to a database but something completely different.  I just want to be able to show progress with status messages in one box.  Does anyone have any ideas how to complete this task.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Ok... found a better way to do this but now I want to show different messages at certain percentages of the progress bar.  How can I do that with this code?


ProgressOn("DB Connect", "Obtaining Data from System", "0%")

    ; Update the progress value of the progress bar window every second.
    For $i = 10 To 100 Step 10
        Sleep(1000)
        ProgressSet($i, $i & "%")
    Next

    ; Set the "subtext" and "maintext" of the progress bar window.
    ProgressSet(100, "Done", "Data  Ready To Send")
    Sleep(5000)

    ; Close the progress window.
    ProgressOff()

Maybe try something like this....

ProgressOn("DB Connect", "Obtaining Data from System", "0%")

    ; code to connect to databasesw and do stuff
      ; you'll have to manually figure out what percentages to set
      ; your progress bar like so

      ProgressSet(10, "Connecting to Database 1", "Please wait...")
      Sleep(1000) ; Just for test but here is where you'd connect and do stuff
      ProgressSet(25, "Connecting to Database 2", "Please wait...")
      Sleep(1000) ; Connect to a database and to do stuff
      ProgressSet(50, "Connecting to Database 3", "Please wait...")
      Sleep(1000) ; Connect to a database and to do stuff
      ProgressSet(75, "Connecting to Database 4", "Please wait...")
      Sleep(1000) ; Connect to a database and to do stuff

    ; Set the "subtext" and "maintext" of the progress bar window.
    ProgressSet(100, "Done", "Data  Ready To Send")
    Sleep(5000)

    ; Close the progress window.
    ProgressOff()
