More information is needed. It is not clear what you are trying to accomplish, especially if the TextBox Message Visibility depends on some condition. It would also be helpful if you show your existing code so far.

MessageBox.Show is contained in System.Windows.Forms and is desinged for platform applications, use javascript alert().

I will only tell you how to do it, not do it for you.
Unless, of course, you want to hire me to do work for you.

The best way I've found to do this is to create a static class MessageBox with a static method Show(), which will give you the ablility to to still use the syntax MessageBox.Show("Your Message"); and convert it into window.alert("Your Message");.

The javascript alert() function is limited as it doesn't provide any overloads for changing the caption of the MessageBox, but it still works nicely.

I've written a how to on my blog at: http://sceptermt.blogspot.com/2008/0...lass-in-c.html that shows the source code that I used in C# for my web application and details on how it works.

You could also write overloads for the static show() method to allow the class to do a javascript confirm() or a prompt(). I haven't needed that functionality yet so I've just kept it simple.
