Hi there. I'm going to teach you how to make a message box. All you need is Notepad. If you have any comments, feel free to post them. Just start learning and have fun!

Step 1: Step 1: Typing the text

First, open Notepad and type this:

x=msgbox(box text,buttons,box title)

On the part where it says "box text", type the text you want on the window (with quotation marks). On the "box title", type the title of the message box the same way you typed the text. On "buttons" type a number (without quotation marks):

0: Normal message box
1: OK and Cancel
2: Abort, Retry, Ignore
3: Yes, No, Cancel
4: Yes and No
5: Retry and Cancel
16: Critical message icon
32: Warning query icon
48: Warning message icon
64: Information message icon
4096: Always stay on top of the desktop
