If you want to show the message box in some specific position, I suggest to
include it in a User Function only dedicated to this.

Other way is to generate an Specific User Function. Due to (as time before
was discussed) message box stops the application until the operator (or
timeout) accept or reject the message, we have developed specific operator
message functions in our programs. Although the best way should be that the
VEE itself could have that functionality, because their operator messages
are very good and with several options very difficul to imitate in a
developed User Funcion.
