MSG( text )

MSG

Specifies text to display in the status bar.

text

A string constant containing the message to display in the status bar.

The MSG attribute (PROP:MSG) specifies text to display in the first zone of the status bar.

On a control declaration, MSG specifies the text to display when the control has focus. If the control has non-persistent focus (has the SKIP attribute, or is placed in a TOOLBAR or a window with the TOOLBOX attribute) the text displays whenever the mouse cursor is positioned over the control.

On an APPLICATION or WINDOW structure, MSG specifies text to display in the first zone of the status bar when the control with focus has no MSG attribute of its own.

Example:

MainWin APPLICATION('My Application'),SYSTEM,MAX,ICON('MyIcon.ICO'),STATUS

        MENUBAR

         MENU('&File'),USE(?FileMenu)

          ITEM('&Open...'),USE(?OpenFile),MSG('Open a file')

          ITEM('&Close'),USE(?CloseFile),DISABLE,MSG('Close the open file')

          ITEM(),SEPARATOR

          ITEM('E&xit'),USE(?MainExit),MSG('Exit the program')

         END

        END

       END
