try this:

with a button that has NO label (which will seem a bit odd when you see 
the code)
i.e. you will be able to shift the NAME of the checkbox, NOT the label:

Let's assume that your button "Swasti"
has a name that is 40 pixels wide:

so, try this in your messageBox:

set the labelWidth of btn "Swasti" to 100

and, hey presto; your Checkbox name should have been shifted over to the 
left of the check box.
