      Yes, sort of
      You can create a short vbscript file with the messagebox in it, you could write the response from the messagebox to a file and read that in your bat

        i know i can start a exe file displaying a messagebox implemented by c or c++.

        but i want to know whether i can start a messagebox directly with batch command or not.

        Batch code does not support messageboxes, popups, or windows. However this little novelty script maybe helpful:

        Code: [Select]
        @echo off
        start %comspec% /c "mode 40,10&title My Popup&color 1e&echo.&echo. Today is %date%&echo.&echo. Press a key!&pause>NUL"

        This is one of those scripts where you keep asking "What was I thinking"

        What about:

        msg * Hello!!!!!!!!!!

        That works in Command Prompt and in a batch file.

          echo msgbox"yourmesagehere">a.vbs,&;a.vbs  <<to display once
          echo for i = 1 to 10>a.vbs &;echo msgbox"yourmessagehere">>a.vbs &;echo next>>a.vbs  << to display 10 times

          echo msgbox"yourmesagehere">a.vbs,&;a.vbs  <<to display once

          That doesn't work, gives a VBS compilation error.

          This does

          Code: [Select]
          echo msgbox"your message here">a.vbs&a.vbs
          (The semicolon and comma were causing the error)

            that was a typo sorry,

            echo msgbox"yourmesagehere">a.vbs &;a.vbs   is what i ment instead.

            echo msgbox"yourmesagehere">a.vbs &;a.vbs   is what i ment instead.

            You don't need the semicolon (';')

            This is tidier because it deletes the vbs afterwards

            Code: [Select]
            echo msgbox"your message here">a.vbs&a.vbs&del a.vbs
