Show Message Action

An action to show a pop-up message to the user.

Updated over a week ago

The Show Message action will display a message in a pop-up window. 

This action is used to convey information to the user, such as confirmations or warnings. It can also be a useful debugging tool. You can display action results to see if they hold values you are expecting.


Title: the title text for the pop-up window

Message: the text to be shown in the pop-up window. This text can be manually formatted using HTML tags.

Insert a value into the message: you can display values from the screen or action results. 

Show these button(s): buttons at the bottom of the message window

  • Ok: closes the window.

  • Ok/Cancel: if Cancel is chosen, the remaining actions are ignored.

  • Yes/No: Place the user's response in an action result which can be used later within a conditional statement.

  • When the "varInput" control in the dropdown, it gets added to the Message section as #control.varInput.

When the button is pressed, the message is formatted as shown below:
