    button text?

    Is it possible changing the button text; without using the whole win32 api code?

    I mean, working to a program that is this simple:

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    int main()
    {
    MessageBox(0, "press yes to continue", "title", MB_OK);
    }
    Thanks!

    You can't change the button text of a MessageBox to something custom. Now you can change MB_OK to something different to get the buttons to say different things. Like MB_YESNO will give you "Yes" and "No" buttons. The complete list can be found Here.

    If you want anything more complex than that, you have to make your own dialog.
