Hi sg2000,

VBScript's MsgBox() function for sure does not support changing colors. Neither does SecureCRT's MessageBox() method, but I can at least make a feature request for that.

Both do use the configured Windows theme as far as color of the titlebar and background color. That may be the limit of what can be done. Results will likely differ depending on what Theme you have configured in SecureCRT as well (View menu).

I have created a feature request on your behalf in our product enhancement database for the ability to define background color for MessageBox/Prompt methods of Dialog object. If you prefer direct email notification, send an email to support@vandyke.com and include "Feature Request - Forum Thread #13548" in the subject line or use this form from the support page of our website.
