Message box



A message box can be used to display a short message of no more than 3 lines to the user. "Yes" and "No" buttons can also be added to the message box. Clicking on "Yes" executes a particular action using the link-object feature.


Creating a Message Box

Go to the menu bar and select: "Objects - Message Window...", this opens a dialog window which is used to administrate all messages.

Every time a message box is created, the Editor automatically creates a link object and links it to the message box.

Creating a message box with "Yes" and "No" buttons

A message box can also be created with "Yes" and "No" buttons as an option. This makes it possible to ask the CD user a question. If the question is answered with "Yes", a particular action can be activated. This action is defined using a link object.
