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:"AAA:") <-- how do I manipulate the font.

Many Thanks
