I had now idea you could copy the content of a messagebox! Awesome.

Hi Tom,

That works on our own computers of course, but we can't mandate it to

If system message boxes shown from your app are too small it is very
likely that all system message boxes are too small. So I hardly expect
customers to not be willing to adjust the DPI settings when they use
high resolution screens.

I understand OP's desire to have some messages stand out more. We have a
similar paradigm and wrote our own message box for "alerts" that was much
larger and had more information available. It would be nice to have a
more pumped up message box paradigm built in.

I like the system message boxes because I can press Ctrl+C to copy a
textual representation of their content into the clipboard.
Hopefully your message boxes add this feature as well ;-)
