The Message Box is a useful tool, especially for attended processes. For example, it can provide updates on a task's progress, confirmation of a successful run or present you with the option to interact with a running task.
Double click the icon or drag it to the process visuliser to use the Message Box function.
Using Mouse Action
The Mouse Action step is a step that must be created manually because it is not possible to provide the decision criteria when you are in recording mode.
|Title Bar||Set the title of the message box.|
|Icon||Select the message box icon: Informational (default), Error, Questionmark and Warning.|
|Button types||Either choose from a selection of preset button types: OK, Yes, No or None, or text or a variable. Selecting None will hide the button.|
|Message||The content of you message. Variables may be used for dynamic content.|
|Location on Screen||The message box location on the screen during task playback.|
|Button click result to variable||Map your button choice back to a variable to work with your decision later on in the task.|
|Autoclose||Set the time (in seconds) after which the window will automatically close itself and continue with the task.|
Set the Message Box properties
Windows enforces an eight-character limit for the button text.
Please see the Advanced IF example, as it features multiple message boxes.
