Messagebox fonts in VB .NET

By rwint ·
I'm new to VB.NET and I've tried searching the WEB so either this is very basic or very rare.

What do I code to change the font for text in a specific messagebox without altering any default font settings. Example:
messagebox.show("AAA:") <-- how do I manipulate the font.

Many Thanks

Rare. Messagebox is a wrapper to the windows system dialog box, You might be able to pick up the handle and punch a font change to it, be easier to create you own dialog form and just call that though.

Fonts in MessageBox

If you want to consider a commercial solution, you can look at my HTML MessageBox product at www.html-messagebox.com, which allows you to use simple HTML in the text of the MessageBox (MsgBox in VB!) to change fonts, and use bold, italics and underline.
