messagebox "red x" corner

P: n/a
Is it possible to not show the close button (red X in upper right
corner) in the titlebar of a messagebox so the user doesn't see it.

I am curious why you would want to hide the close button.

I don't want to. I have a ding-a-ling user who is asking me if we can
do it.

When all else fails, just say no :)

I read a quote from somewhere, it says something like the following (don't
know who to credit):

"Programming today is a race between software engineers creating bigger and
better idiot-proof programs and the universe creating bigger and better
idiots. So far, the universe is winning."

:)

If this is a WinForms application, you can create your own Form that mimics
the MsgBox method.

the original is this
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build
bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce
bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
