ScreenMan API


You can use this entry point only within a ScreenMan form, at all places where M code can be placed on the form.

This procedure prints messages in the Command Area.

If you pass the string "$$EOP", then ScreenMan will issue the prompt "Press RETURN to continue" in the Command Area. This is useful if, for example, you want to print messages as part of the post action of a page, and need to pause to give the user a chance to read the messages before ScreenMan leaves that page.


Input Variables

(Required) The message to print in the Command Area.


(Required) An array of messages to print in the Command Area. STRING(1), STRING(2), ..., STRING(n) each contain a line of text.
