Python Script/gui question

Hello i have a script which uses win32gui.messagebox to alert users of the data being processed and to confirm that the code continues to run.

This works well and good when you run the script from the python window. Confirmations pop up, user clicks, program continues.

if the script is run from the toolbox the gui pop ups are ignored and all you can do is close them.

is there a way to make the toolbox version run the same as the copy/pasta version?
