how do can I code the messagebox in VB to display background color
Dave Kreskowiak 8-Dec-10 17:07pm    
What are you asking about?? Are you trying to change the background color of a MessageBox or are you trying to display the color value of some backcolor property of a control??

You cannot change the backcolor of a MessageBox. The MessageBox is system generated and will always use the system color theme. If you want a customized MessageBox, you'll have to make your own using a Form, exposing the proper properties, and supplying the rendering code to alter the form as appropriate.

I think, you want a messagebox with custom colors.
You cannot change the background of a messagebox, but you can create your own control.

You might be able to derive a new class from MessageBox, and then intercept the paint event or something like that. Be a programmer, and try stuff out.

It might be easier to just code up your own MessageBox class. It shouldn't be that hard.
