Inline Messages 

An inline message is an informational or action-optional warning message that appears in the results pane instead of being displayed in a modal, pop-up message box.

Inline informational messages should be displayed on the original results pane surface; inline warning messages should appear in a message panel in the results pane that uses the “infobackground” system color to provide a yellow background.

Illustrations of the inline messages and the various message icons are shown in the Inline Messages: Design Guidelines topic.

Error messages, confirmation messages, and warning messages that require user response (Yes, No, OK, Cancel) should always be presented in a modal, pop-up message box.
