Can I create my own MessageBox?

P: n/a
Hi,
I am running WinXP Pro with Access 2003.
I would like to have a window or an Alert Message that displays and
stops processing without continuing out of the routine that called it.
Like a MessageBox. The MessageBox is not big enough and the font is too
small for what I would like. I looked for a way to modify this but i
could not find it.
I thought making a window "Modal" would accomplich this but it does not.

When I am within a routine and I have to ask the user for a decision
before continuing I need to stop right there and not continue. I would
like to make a nice looking window with large font anf possibly
different color font.

TIA
Tim

Open the form with the optional acDialog argument of the OpenForm method.
Your calling code will pause until the form is closed or made hidden.

Thank you so much...I have never used that before and have had to
program my way around this problem in the past. I just tried it and it
worked just fine. Again, thank you very much...And just when I thought I
knew it all...lol

By the way, you can change the font, font size, etc. for the message
box, but it changes for ALL windows programs.

Right- lick on a blank section of the Windows Desktop.
Select Properties + Appearance + Advanced.
Find the Message Box in the drop down.

Creating your own message form does just as well.
