Show a popup/message box from a Windows batch file

0

Issue

Is there a way to display a message box from a batch file (similar to how xmessage can be used from bash-scripts in Linux)?

Solution

I would make a very simple VBScript file and call it using CScript to parse the command line parameters.

Something like the following saved in MessageBox.vbs:

Set objArgs = WScript.Arguments
messageText = objArgs(0)
MsgBox messageText

Which you would call like:

cscript MessageBox.vbs "This will be shown in a popup."

MsgBox reference if you are interested in going this route.
