Changing fontsize

I'm trying to change the fontsize & fonttype of a message in a MsgBox? Is there anybody out there who can help me.

RE: Changing fontsize

you cant change the font in a meesage box. Create a form with only a label and an OK button and call it in your program.

frmMessage.lblMessage.Caption = "This will show on the form"
frmMessage.Show vbModal

then in the click event of the OK button on the message form

Unload Me

Since you are showing the form modally execution will pause when the form is shown and will not continue until the user clicks the OK buton, unloading the form. You get the same behavior as an OK only message box with very little work. If you want Yes/No/Cancel type functionality you can do that too, with a little more work.
