What is MessageBox

MessageBox from Claudiosoft is a freeware 32-bit command line utility for Windows 9x/NT/2000 that you can use in batch files to launch a message box and get an answer from the user.

The possible answers are : YES/NO, OK/CANCEL, YES/NO/CANCEL.


Here is an example :

@echo off
MSGBOX.EXE "This is a sample message.\nDo you want to continue ?" "MessageBox Test" YESNOCANCEL
if errorlevel 7 goto NO
if errorlevel 6 goto YES
if errorlevel 2 goto CANCEL
REM if errorlevel 1 goto OK
goto fin

echo You don't want to continue.
goto fin
echo You want to continue.
goto fin
echo You don't want to go further.
goto fin
echo ok
goto fin

Warning : Remember that the command "if errorlevel 6" means that the return value is larger or equal than 6. That is why the different cases are always put in a decreasing order.
