Is it possible to change the screen position of the msgbox in a CF application.

Not the system message box. You can make your own and move it around

Hi Alex,

Thank you for your reply. For reasons to complicated to cover in this post I need to use a msgbox rather than a form. Is it perhaps possible to send the message box a message to reposition itself after it has opened

It is possible to make a form which has a look and feel very similiar to that of a MessageBox, if that was part of the reasoning for desiring a messagebox over a form.

See the following forum thread for instance - "Dragable form" - http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx PostID=2173946&SiteID=1

In general it would be easier to attempt to re-create a message box using a form, rather than attempting to excert control over the built in OS message boxes.

Hope this helps,

Thanks Christopher,

It was more than a look and feel issue, but I will check out the link to see if it offers anything.
