I have following code in my application.

MessageBox.Show(txtBxName, "Name cannot be blank", "Input Data Error", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Exclamation);

But the Message box does not show up next to the text box txtName. Why?

You can't set the location, or size or most of the look and feel of the standard message box. But, you can show a customized messagebox like described in this article:
