I hope this is the right forum section to provide this script?

I have improved an AHK (www.AutoHotkey.com) script
from user "icefreez" called "Simple Message, on top for a delayed time"
found at http://www.autohotkey.com...topic.php?p=135127#135127

I want to display an Message Box to provide some info or help to me or an user/customer.
This script show an GUI without border and (OK,Yes,No) buttons.
The time out, the font size and the font face can be choose.

I use this MsgBox with Total Commander to add menu entry without an function but provide an info to me.
Total Commander allow no empty commands so i create an own dummy command who shows an info box only.

I could use this MessaBox script to add an menu entry to show me an longer text to hint me to an trick or the right syntax of an TC command.

I could use this MessaBox in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce" to provide an one time info to customers.

I could use this MessaBox with Task planer to remind me on something.

I could use this MessaBox in DOS batch.cmd to prompt some info.

Maybe it is helpful for others too? Here it is...

Here is the code (Open Source)

v.05 So.15.07.2007
Added some baubles to avoid making bad jokes with it
; Timeout > 15sec => Provide some Info to the user
; Timeout > 29sec => User info plus possibility to cancel
; Timeout > 119sec => User info plus possibility to cancel plus show start info

---

Here is the compiled exe (Open Source):

* MessaBox_v05.exe (196.63 KB - downloaded 711 times.)


, just run it to see an help:





------------------------------------

Use it with DOS



-



Use it with an .LNK short cut



-



Use it as Total Commander button



-


Use it as Total Commander user command





-

-------------------------------------------------------

If you prefer some Yes/No/OK button  MessageBox and execute other commands try an VBS script:


---------------------------------

Or use an little app for this like:

msgbox from http://debrock.org/

http://81.56.229.95/msgbox/msgbox.htm
This command-line tool displays a string or the content of a text-file in a message-box.


---

or PView from Alex Kurz





----------

Or Wprompt from Horst Schaeffer
Homepage: http://home.mnet-online.de/horst.muc/


-

or maybe NirCmd from NirSoft


As always .....  all very small in size, stand alone & portable, freeware (or the like)

If you have any use, please reply so i know if it's useful for others or not.
