Subject:RE: Error Messages: Text for the title bar From:"David Downing" <DavidDowning -at- users -dot- com> To:"TECHWR-L" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- raycomm -dot- com> Date:Mon, 30 Dec 2002 09:47:50 -0500
<<What sayeth the list?>>
Well, I sayeth that I thinketh the title bar should sum up the reason
for the error message box appearing in the first place. I think the
best way to do that would be to name the general category of error that
occurred, so as to provide a context for what follows -- for example
"Printer error," "Error writing to disk," etc.
