How to tell if something is put into the message box

NVM I figured out a way to do this. I set gRevDevelopment to true, then set a breakpoint on the first line of revInitialise of the behavior of field "message" of card "Single Line" of stack "Message Box". At that point I was able to use the Handler List popup menu in the script editor to find the line of script that made the call.

That technique might be useful to others.

Hi all.

I, like a moron, put a value into the message box usign the form "put x" without the "into message". Now I cannot find where that bit of code is. Is there a place I can modify the code that does that to either break or else save the calling program a log file?
