The Help and hint for MsgBox includes the icon option cMsgBoxHand. I don't think I have ever used this. I was interested in Klaus' sugestion in http://www.basic4ppc.com/forum/questions-help-needed/6404-adding-link-button.html#post37570 for an alternative to MsgBox but when I tried to run it under desktop IDE I get a complaint that hand.png is missing (although the screenshot shown has the exclamation rather than hand; I guess Klaus has covered all options). Since Klaus attached only the sbp file I thought I could acquire a hand bitmap by capturing from another program using the icon option cMsgBoxHand. That was when I found the real bug I am reporting: MsgBox with icon option cMsgBoxHand, per the hint, and run under desktop IDE shows the red X rather than a hand. When does the hand show? Mike.
