Just bumped into yet another undocumented MessageBox style feature, and thought I would bring them all together under one post:

6 - Microsoft® Windows® 2000/XP: The message box contains three push buttons: Cancel, Try Again, Continue. Use this message box type instead of ABORTRETRYIGNORE.

65536 - Specifies the message box window as the foreground window.

262144 - The message box is created with the TOPMOST window style.

524288 - Specifies the message box text is right-aligned.

Was also thinking that the description of MessageBox style 4096 is NOT very accurate or at least, maybe mis-leading:

4096 System-modal. All applications are suspended until the user responds to the message box.

In reality, System-modal is exactly like Application-modal (0) except that it has the TOPMOST style set (so that its on top off all other windows).

Its NOT true that ALL APPLICATIONS ARE SUSPENDED until the user reponds to the message box - the reality is that only windows associated with Kixtart are suspended.
