InputBoxEx() - Written by Aaron Young, Jan/Feb 2000

MailTo:ajyoung@pressenter.com

© Copyright 2000, Aaron Young - All rights reserved.

Allows the inbuilt InputBox to be Customized in
the following ways:

Back/ForeColor
Font/Fontsize
Dialog Centering
Password Character Masking
Can Raise a Trappable error when the Dialog is Cancelled

Usage:

Result = InputboxEx( _
Message,[Title],[Default],[Default],[XPos],[YPos], _
[HelpFile],[Context],[ForeColor],[BackColor], _
[FontName],[FontSize],[PasswordChar],[CancelError])

This code is Freeware, but if you use it in whole
or part, I would appreciate some credit for my work.
