Custom message box

Postby albalustro » Thu Nov 22, 2012 2:16 am

there are any way to change the default message box of windows or that black background from the messages on the bottom?
I would like to use a message box contextualized with the theme of my game, with a detailed edge or something
Is it possible?

Yes. This is possible. I've seen some AM games that really spiced this area up.

Using some vb script, you can alter the message objects properties.

Here are a few things I know you can do:
Code: Select all
MessageCanvasObject.BackColor = RGB(0,0,255)  'this changes the background color
MessageObject.FontName = "Times New Roman"
MessageObject.FontSize = 20
MessageObject.ForeColor = RGB(255,0,200)  'this changes the font color
