msgbox (no buttons)

How would you remove all buttons from a msgbox to display (timed) text only?

or is there another feature, to display a very simply box that displays a
message for a controled length of time

I'd just create a command button on my form, make it hidden by default.
When it's time to display the time, make the button visible and just
repeatedly change its caption. When time is up, hide the button.

If all you want to do is display information then why use a command
button instead of a label? With a label you can set the caption
property as needed to show tetx and then set it back to "" when done
to clear it. Labels also use a lot less resources than most other
controls.
