Message Bar

A Message Bar is a modeless bar at the top of the main SOLIDWORKS window that provides information specific to the active document.

There are four types of Message Bars:
  • Information
  • Acknowledgment
  • Warning
  • Error
A Message Bar can open in several situations. It is usually a warning about a document state, for example, that your changes will not be saved because you did not check out the document. A Message Bar never auto-dismisses - you must manually dismiss it.
