How to close the message box automatically



Hi ,

after checking the status of the service i used the message box to show the user that service is running or not. But i want to close that message box window automatically rather than user click "ok or “enter”

Please help me out.

(sort-of-tutorial-ette) Message Box w/time out, access TextInfo items


Try to build another independent workflow that runs together and check if the message box appears. If appears, click on ok. If not, still checking (looping/imageExists). Maybe someone can give you a better solution but it’s the only way I can think right now haha

Hope It Helps!



my concern is to not to click on “ok” manually i want message box disappear after showing the text.


There is no way to close message box without clicking on ‘Ok’ button. So my ideia is to run a parallel robot that clicks on the ‘Ok’ button automatically.



I agree with @Lucas.Pimenta (not totally with 2nd robot idea)

Is it ok if you show those messages in command prompt than in a message box.


You may try Callout activity
See here:


'Invoke Workflow' Activity - display output on screen

Didn’t know Callout is used as Pop up activity…Thanks!


haha thanks but why’d i wants to show the msg in “CMD” when i can use “WriteLine” Activity which is convenient rather than showing black screen in middle of the workflow.

The solution is "Callout Activity . thanks to @adrian.:+1:


the best solution . Thanks a lot @adrian .


don’t know how you run the parallel bots in UIPATH Studio free version. Don’t you think its complex workflow for a simple requirement ,where i can use “Callout” activity rather than some other way around .
@adrian thanks mate again.


As I said before, It was my best idea for the moment. I didn’t knew the Callout Message Activity until now. I was just trying to help with my current knowledge.

Anyway, thanks a lot Adrian to give us a best solution :wink:



I had similar issue. I did with Powershell command, its just one line command which displays message box and auto closes as per the parameter passed.


do you mind sharing the script and activity used to achieve this.


As of now, I don’t have script. But I do know that you need to pass a command using “Invoke Powershell” activity. Below is the command which I passed

“(New-Object -ComObject”
