Pascal,

I have done this a lot, this works well:

command fadeInMsg pText
   lock screen for visual effect
   put pText into fld "mymessage"
   show fld "mymessage"
   unlock screen with visual effect dissolve very fast
end fadeInMsg

command fadeOutMsg
   lock screen for visual effect
   hide fld "mymessage"
   unlock screen with visual effect dissolve very fast
end fadeOutMsg

Then call it like this:

   fadeInMsg "Useful information here."
   send "fadeOutMsg" to me in 1000 milliseconds

Easy, neat, and non-blocking.

HTH
