Node:message, Next:, Previous:label, Up:Widget Creation


A message widget is similar to a label widget but for multi-line text. As its name suggests it is mostly used for creating popup message information boxes.

An example of a message widget is

message .msg -text "Your data is incorrect.\n\n \
              Please correct it and try again." \
    -justify center

which will create a message widget displaying the text shown, center justified. The width of the message box can be given through the -width switch. Any lines that exceed the width of the box are wrapped at word boundaries.
