Is it possible to change the font size of a prompt message in an InputBox?

Can the size of the InputBox itself be made bigger/smaller?

I ask these questions more out of curiosity than anything else. I have an InputBox that prompts the user to input their Employee Number. When I created the InputBox, the text for the prompt message struck me as being a bit on the small side, and the size of the InputBox itself was overly large relative to the amount of data being input. If I have to live with system defaults, so be it!

I don't think there is any easy way to do it. I suppose there is an API you could tinker with to get it to do what you want.

However, it is MUCH MUCH easier to use a custom form that you design yourself.

Thanks for the input Frank. The defaults are sufficient for my purposes, plus I'm too lazy to go the custom form route!

You're welcome. I am glad I could help. Yes, I, too, am too lazy to "reinvent the wheel".
