Message Box API

Hi all,
In a program I am working on, I need to prompt the user to indicate a path to certain files. However, there may be cases where these file may never exsist. In these situations I want to give the user the ability to shutoff showing this message box.

Is there an API or setting for the Message Box API to include a checkbox to never show the message again?


RE: Message Box API

Nope. I dont think so. Easiest way is to display a dialog box and a .ini file (to remember options).

best of luck!

RE: Message Box API

    Create your own dialog and display....
Thank's and Regards
