    What I am asking is that when you show a message box, the execution stops at that point untill you respond to the message box? Is there any way to show a messagebox which will allow the execution to continue, something like when you show a form.

    Try creating a custom form to act as a msg box.

    BTW The msgbox is modal.

    I am not sure which thread, but there is a way to continue execution while a msgbox is displayed.

    Try the setwindowlong API and
    • Message-Box Modality
    • MB_APPLMODAL The user must respond to the message box before continuing work in the current window. However, the user can move to the windows of other applications and work in those windows. The default is MB_APPLMODAL if neither MB_SYSTEMMODAL nor MB_TASKMODAL is specified.

    • MB_SYSTEMMODAL All applications are suspended until the user responds to the message box. System-modal message boxes are used to notify the user of serious, potentially damaging errors that require immediate attention and should be used sparingly.

    • MB_TASKMODAL Similar to MB_APPLMODAL, but not useful within a Microsoft Foundation class application. This flag is reserved for a calling application or library that does not have a window handle available.

    non modal message box

    Just wanted to say that I found that the
    "messagebox" api is not modal.
    I had the same problem with "msgbox" because it was modal...

    If you have already done it, could you post the code?
