Message Box

To configure how to display a message to the user in a pop-up box:

  1. In the Message Box dialog box, under Message, enter the message text. You can insert dynamic values using the Insert Placeholder button.

    NOTE: If you want to reuse the text in other messages, you can save this text as a macro by right-clicking anywhere under Message and choosing Create New Macro from the pop-up menu. If you want to reuse only a part of the text, select this part before right-clicking. Specify other details in the New Macro dialog box and click OK. The message text would be replaced with the new macro. For details, see Creating User Macros.

  2. Keep the Enable operation check box selected. Otherwise, this operation will be ignored.
  3. Click OK.

    NOTE: If a Message Box operation is activated non-interactively, i.e. by an internal Alloy Navigator service or Trigger, Alloy Navigator doesn’t display the message but records it in the service’s log file. For details, see Creating Service Actions and Creating Triggers.
