Let us consider an example of displaying content using the MessageBox component.


To use the MessageBox component:

  1. In the Toolbox, expand General.
  2. Expand the MessageBox component, drag Show component and drop it in the Design surface.
  3. Double-click the Messagebox to enter the content the user wishes to display in the messagebox.

  4. The user can also enter new data by overriding the existing data.

  5. To override the existing data:

    • Right-click the required Data In port.
    • Click Override and change the data source.


    To learn more about overriding the data source of the data port, refer the Override section.

  6. Connect the control ports of all components.


    If the user wishes to display the output of another component with the help of message box such as the output of the Variable component or the Expression component, they must connect the Data Out port of that component to the Data In port of the Message Box component.

  7. In the toolbar, click Run.
    The text in the MessageBox component is displayed.
