PowerShell Forms

I am using the following script to prompt users to reboot following an update that we will be pushing out.  Is it possible to add text above the dropdown menu in the Windows Form?  Just something along the lines of "an update was applied that requires a reboot..."

[void][System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName( “System.Windows.Forms”)
[void][System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName( “Microsoft.VisualBasic”)
$form = New-Object “System.Windows.Forms.Form”;
$form.Width = 500;
$form.Height = 150;
$form.Text = "Computer Reboot Notification";
$form.StartPosition = [System.Windows.Forms.FormStartPosition]::CenterScreen;
$DropDownArray = @("4:Hours", "8:Hours", "12:Hours", "24:Hours")
$DDL = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.ComboBox
$DDL.Location = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(140,10)
$DDL.Size = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(130,30)
ForEach ($Item in $DropDownArray) {
$DDL.Items.Add($Item) | Out-Null
}
$DDL.SelectedIndex = 0
$button1 = New-Object “System.Windows.Forms.button”;
$button1.Left = 40;
$button1.Top = 85;
$button1.Width = 100;
$button1.Text = “Reboot Now”;
$button1.Add_Click({$global:xinput = "Reboot";$Form.Close()})
$button2 = New-Object “System.Windows.Forms.button”;
$button2.Left = 170;
$button2.Top = 85;
$button2.Width = 100;
$button2.Text = “Postpone”;
$button2.Add_Click({$global:xinput = "Postpone:" + $DDL.Text;$Form.Close()})
$button3 = New-Object “System.Windows.Forms.button”;
$button3.Left = 290;
$button3.Top = 85;
$button3.Width = 100;
$button3.Text = “Cancel”;
$button3.Add_Click({$global:xinput = "Postpone24";$Form.Close()})
 
$form.KeyPreview = $True
$form.Add_KeyDown({if ($_.KeyCode -eq "Enter") 
{$x=$textBox1.Text;$form.Close()}})
$form.Add_KeyDown({if ($_.KeyCode -eq "Escape") 
{$form.Close()}})
 
 
$eventHandler = [System.EventHandler]{ 
$button1.Click;
$DropDownArray.Text;
$form.Close();};
$button.Add_Click($eventHandler);
$form.Controls.Add($button1);
$form.Controls.Add($button2);
$form.Controls.Add($button3);
$form.Controls.Add($DDL);
$form.Controls.Add($textLabel1)
$ret = $form.ShowDialog();
if ($global:xinput -eq "Reboot") { shutdown -r -f /t 600 }
if ($global:xinput -like "Postpone:*:Hours") {
$hval = (([int]$global:xinput.split(":")[1])*60*60)
shutdown -r -f /t $hval}
if ($global:xinput -eq "Postpone24") { shutdown -r -f /t 86400 }

Here you go

[void][System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName( “System.Windows.Forms”)
[void][System.Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName( “Microsoft.VisualBasic”)
$form = New-Object “System.Windows.Forms.Form”;
$form.Width = 500;
$form.Height = 150;
$form.Text = "Computer Reboot Notification";
$form.StartPosition = [System.Windows.Forms.FormStartPosition]::CenterScreen;
$Label = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.Label
$Label.Size = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(500,20)
$Label.Text = "An update was applied that requires a reboot..."
$Form.Controls.Add($Label)
$DropDownArray = @("4:Hours", "8:Hours", "12:Hours", "24:Hours")
$DDL = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.ComboBox
$DDL.Location = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(140,30)
$DDL.Size = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(130,30)
ForEach ($Item in $DropDownArray) {
$DDL.Items.Add($Item) | Out-Null
}
$DDL.SelectedIndex = 0
$button1 = New-Object “System.Windows.Forms.button”;
$button1.Left = 40;
$button1.Top = 85;

$button1.Text = “Reboot Now”;

$form.KeyPreview = $True

This will give you three lines to work with

$Label = New-Object System.Windows.Forms.Label
$Label.Size = New-Object System.Drawing.Size(500,40)
