Simple Message Box


Name: MessageBox.sym

Range (if applicable): N/A

Description: A simple message box to show a text message with title and close button. Similar to the VBScript MsgBox function, this simplified version was created to show a text string. Because it is not VBScript, it will work in the SMA client on IoTView in Linux, iPad or Android.

Notes: This symbol uses only native objects.


Message: String tag or constant string “inside of double quotes”

Title: String tag or constant string “inside of double quotes”

Visible: Bool, set this tag to non-zero to show the message box (the close button turns off this tag).

Ideas for improvement:

  1. Add different colors

  2. Create in different sizes

Here’s how to use this symbol:
Unzip and copy the .sym files into your Symbol folder of where InduSoft Web Studio is installed. This is usually “C:\Program Files (x86)\Wonderware InduSoft Web Studio v8.0\Symbol” or similar. Either create a new folder or copy it into an existing one, such as “Indicators”.
