The message text that is displayed in the body of the message box.


Parameterized strings can be used in the message text of the message box. For more information, see the Examples section in EventTrigger.ValueQueries.

When setting this property value, the value can be text that is retrieved from a resource .dll file. A specialized string is used to reference the text from the resource file. The format of the string is $(@ [Dll], [ResourceID]) where [Dll] is the path to the .dll file that contains the resource and [ResourceID] is the identifier for the resource text. For example, the setting this property value to $(@ %SystemRoot%\System32\ResourceName.dll, -101) will set the property to the value of the resource text with an identifier equal to -101 in the %SystemRoot%\System32\ResourceName.dll file.
