local theMsg 
put "the message box" into theMsg 

# or from MC:
put "control" && quote & "Message Field" /
& quote && "of stack" && quote & /
"Message Box" & quote into theMsg /

put the vis of stack "Message Box" into
put (the textSize of theMsg) into

Message execution error:
Error description: Chunk: error in object

can one get the exact name of the msg fld &
it is probably better to just create a new fld
for displaying informaation, but why the error
messages? does RR not want msg used frivolously?
