As far as I know...you can not change the font color, style of the message of the MessageBox.Show() method.

You can write your custom form which act like message box and you can display your own custom message and change the font size and style.

It is not possible to format the MessageBox any more than what the MessageBox class provides; just look at the documentation. If you need to do anything different from what is documented, it is easier to just create a form yourself that does what you need an then you have much, much more flexibility.

Thanks !!!

You can not change the default Message Box provided but you can code your own that can behave same like that MessageBox Window ..

though if you want to do it force fully it can be done with Win32 API Function by force fully getting the handle of the TextBox Window Generated ..but it will be very hard to do for you as Creating our own new MessageBox will be easier approach
