Delphi Language Details:
Using ShowMessage
Posted 19 years ago on 8/21/2002
Take Away: ShowMessage displays a simple dialog box with the text you provide it. It is one of the most used ways of displaying information.


To do:

  1. Create a new application by selecting File | New Application.
  2. Place a button on the form and change its Caption property to ShowMessage.
  3. Double click on the button to bring up the editor.
  4. Type line 3 from the code listing (on the right) between the begin and end.
  5. Run and test the program by selecting the Run VCR style button (looks like a play button).


  1. The user has no way to modify the text.
  2. Notice the semi-colon at the end of the line you typed in.
  3. If you have trouble compiling, try the copy/paste method to typing.
