This tag instructs LANSA to use the line containing this tag repetitively, once for each message in the application. If you are not using a customized message presentation, you will not use this tag.

The RDML MESSAGES tag is used in a message presentation layout standard page such as DEFAULT_MSGPRES or <processname>_MSGPRES.

The line containing the <RDML MESSAGES> tag cannot contain any other LANSA tags.



For example, the following is a sample standard message layout which you might find in the DEFAULT_MSGPRES page:

<table border="0" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="0" width="100%">

<tr bgcolor="cyan">

<td><img src="<RDML MERGE="*LW3IMGMESSAGES">" alt="Messages" border="0" /></td>


<li><b><RDML MESSAGES></b></li>




The <RDML MESSAGES> tag in the line is replaced by the message in the application.

The RDML MESSAGES tag should not be confused with the <RDML MERGE=“&MESSAGES”> tag. This tag is used in your standard HTML pages. It indicates where LANSA should embed the message window.
