i need to display text in the prompt line of the layout window, i tried to do it as shown;
?prompts " point at the location to place M1 "
But instead, the text is printed in prompt line of CIW. What i am missing ?
Thanks in advance
i asked the same some time ago, have a look at my post
--> setPrompts("my message" "")
refer to sklangref
hope this helps
In reply to StefanSL:
You may also want to look at or consider the "enter" functions that allow you to temporarily set the prompt during a command that gathers data - for example enterPoints, enterPath, enterPolygon... Each of the enter functions accepts a ?prompts argument for this purpose.
I hope that this helps you.

Thanks for your reply.
I tried to look for a function to temporarily display the text in the prompt line just like the enter functions but i couldn't find one. My Case with different than in gathering data, i need to display the text between procedures so that only factor i am waiting for is for the code to exit executing certain procedure. So i used the setPrompts() inside if loops to solve temporary display issue.
