Brief Display of Message, Then Have It Go Away Automatically (like a splash screen)

My client would like the transaction type to be changed from "quote" to "reservation" as soon as she accepts a deposit. I would like to build into the "Accept Money" script a procedure that would check to see if (A) this is the first payment and (B) the transaction type is currently set to "quote". If those 2 conditions are met, I'd like to have the script change the transaction type to "reservation". No problem.


But I'd ALSO like it to display briefly on screen a message to the effect that it has done so. The message should stay on screen for 2 seconds and then go away on its own. I can't figure out how to make "Custom Dialog" do this without requiring user interaction (clicking OK or hitting return) to dismiss the dialog box. "Pause/Resume Script" allows me to wait the required 2 seconds, but it doesn't provide any method of transmitting "OK" to the custom dialog. Any ideas?
