Field Message Expression Property

Enter an expression in the Message Expression box to display a message when a field is edited. Normally, you enter either:

·       Literal: A text message enclosed in quotation marks.

·       Function: A call to a user-defined function that returns the message.

If you’re using a function, you can create your function from the Code page of the Visual FoxPro Project Manager.

When a field is edited on a form you create with VPM Enterprise, the message is displayed at the bottom of your application’s main window. If you’ve included the status bar in your application, the message appears on the status bar.

Tip: You can include the status bar in an application by checking the Status Bar check box on the Environment dialog reached from the VPM Enterprise Options menu when the application’s project is open.
