Can you make on screen messages pop down without having to click them?

I would like to add messages in some of my macros, but want them to stay on screen for a set period and then disappear rather than having to click on them.

Can this be done?

This has been repeated in the forum a couple times, and as far as I am aware, it has not changed. You are limited to basically input boxes and then the generic "OK" message box.

As a messy workaround, you could possibly fake it.

Macro draws a message on screen. Puts it in the foreground, and then a wait timer command delays for display purposes. At the end of the timer the message would then be deleted.

Obviously flawed, and perhaps dangerous if you're not careful, but it should work.

Thanks Trevor. Yes I thought it had been referred to in previous threads, but I couldn't find it. I'll check out the wait timer thing to see if that provides an answer.
