Figure E-6 Action - Display Message Dialog Box

You access this dialog box by using the following methods:

Seconds to be Displayed: Specify the number of seconds that you want the message displayed on the device.

Define Prompts: Define the prompt that you want to display on the device. Additionally, you can specify different locales with different messages.

To create a message:

  1. Click Add to display the Select Locale and Prompt dialog box.

  2. Select a language from the Locale drop-down list. The message displays only on devices in the specified locale. You can create different messages, each with its own locale setting.

  3. Specify the text you want to display on the device.

    You can include {0} in your text to provide a running counter that counts down the number of seconds to 0, after which the prompt is auto-accepted. For example, you could specify the following text:

    Please save your work and close any open applications.

    The message displays for the number of seconds specified in the Seconds to be Displayed field.

  4. Click OK.

Click Edit to change the prompt, or click Remove to delete the prompt.
