P: 17

I would like to know how to change the text on the messagebox buttons.

For example, Yes and No buttons to Do and Don't etc.

Thanks in advance

You can create your own dialog box form, and call it instead. On the button click events, just return a boolean yes or no and close the dialog form

You can just use the MsgBoxStyle Enum to set the Style.
Like here:
MsgBox("Hello", MsgBoxStyle.AbortRetryIgnore, "AbortRetryIgnore")
That would simply set the prompt as "Hello", The style as AbortRetryIngore, and the title as "AbortRetryIgnore"

marcellus7 is correct. You would have to create your own form that mimics the functionality of the built-in message box. Windows provides the message box as a built-in shortcut for performing common tasks and as such has only built in certain functionality. To get anything customized you have to define your own form, as far as I know.
