    MessageBox freezing

    I'm attempting to make an alert-type system that reminds the user of an event that they have defined before, 1 hour before the event happens. If the program is inactive at the exact time than the reminder should occur and is opened after the reminding time, the reminder will show up as planned when opened. If the program is active at this time, the window stops working and freezes, meaning that the MessageBox has actually been called but cannot be seen? What should I do.

    Without seeing your code... the best advice I can give you is cross your fingers that situation never actually arrises.

    Changed my mind. I'll just create another window so I can control it more. Thanks anyway.
