Display Message Action Text Displayed Limit

I am doing a display Message Action. The message is longer than what
will get displayed so it has ... where the message is cut. In the help
description it does not mention a limit and takes all my text when I
setup the prompt but there is one obviously. Is there another method to
get a larger message displayed to a user but not require them to hit OK
or interact with it?

Re: Display Message Action Text Displayed Limit

Just use a script action that is set to "Not Wait" until completed.....
Use WSH/VBS to create a message box....

Something Simple that will have an "OK" box, but it does not need for the users to actually hit "OK" unless you tell ZCM to wait on that action...

If you want a Fancy Dancy Message box, you have use HTA via vbs....

Here is a handy freeware tool for generating message boxes....

Re: Display Message Action Text Displayed Limit

Thanks for the info Craig, pushed me in the right direction. Ended up
doing a form in Powershell along with the commands I was running. Did
graphics and everything came out quite fancy if I do say so.
