  • In the insertion palette, double-click the Message Popup step.
  • In the insertion palette, right-click on the Message Popup step and select Insert Step from the menu.
  • Right-click in the Step pane and select Insert Step from the menu and choose Message Popup.

2.Use the Message Popup edit tabs in the TestStand Sequence Editor and the Configure Message Popup Step  dialog box in a TestStand User Interface to specify the settings for the Message Popup step.
