Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Making and Modifying It.

Making:

So, first copy this following line of code in your Notepad:

x=msgbox("Text",0+16,"Title")

On "text" write your own message text, and on "Title" write the message title.

Now, save it as ".vbs" file and now if you click the file, it will show you the error message you writed.

Modifying:

If you think what that number is "0 + 16", it is the number to choose the "style" of the message.

Here's a list of the many types of the message before the +.

0 = OK button only.

1 = OK and CANCEL

2 = ABORT,RETRY and IGNORE

3 = YES, NO and CANCEL

4 = YES and NO

5 = RETRY AND CANCEL

Here's a list of the many types of the message after the +.

16 = Critical Message

32 = Question Message

48 = Warning Message

64 = Info Message

Step 2: Masking the Fake Error Message.

To mask the Fake Error Message, all you have to do is to make a Shortcut of the file and change the Shortcut icon, for example i inserted the Chrome icon. And the latest step is to rename it.

    Clever, but I'd check the spelling of whatever message you intend to create.

    No problem, just a heads up. The correct spelling would be "System" vs. "Sytem".

    If you mean the message, it's that when I write fast I don't notice.
