SET MESSAGE

SET MESSAGE

Establishes a message row for @…PROMPT command

Syntax

      SET MESSAGE TO [<nRow> [CENTER]]

Arguments

<nRow> Row number to display the message

Description

This command is designed to work in conjunction with the MENU TO and @…PROMPT commands. With this command, a row number between 0 and MaxRow() may be specified in <nRow>. This establishes the row on witch any message associated with an @…PROMPT command will appear.

If the value of <nRow> is 0, all messages will be suppressed. All messaged will be left-justifies unless the CENTER clause is used. In this case, the individual messages in each @…PROMPT command will be centered at the designated row (unless <nRow> is 0). All messages are independent; therefore, the screen area is cleared out by the centered message will vary based on the length of each individual message.

Specifying no parameters with this command set the row value to 0, witch suppresses all messages output. The British spelling of CENTRE is also supported.
