Advanced MessageBox form

P: n/a
Anyone know of a source project for inheriting from the current MessageBox
or a new form that performs most or many of these design requirements:
'1. handle 2-4 buttons as needed, including default button

'2. provide image as specified

'3. allow for form heading

'4. provide 3 areas of text separated by a blank line (area)

'5. provide option to fade away in n seconds

'6. provide footing area to identify form/function where message box was
generated

'7. size the form based on the amount of message content within the text
areas

'8. handle dialog or non-dialog modes

'9. topmost

'10. anything else?

Thanks,

Sounds like you've got to build this yourself.

Dean,

Can you tell us what your messagebox is different from a form showed with
showdialog?

You really make me curiuous about that.
