I'm creating a script that will grab layout data from a table for the current Building Number of the current building my map series is on. It works fine, but I need it to pop up a window if multiple entries exist in the table for that same Building Number. In this window I would need to be able to choose one of the entries identified by their BLDNAME attribute. Is this possible with arcpy or ArcObjects?

Solved over here.

import win32api

win32api.MessageBox(0, 'hello', 'title')


win32api.MessageBox(0, 'hello', 'title', 0x00001000) 

will make the box appear on top of other windows, for urgent messages. See MessageBox function for other options.
