Message Bars

A Message Bar appears at the top of the main SOLIDWORKS window that provides information specific to the active document.

The type of message bar that appears depends on the type of SOLIDWORKS product that you run.
There are four types of Message Bars:
  • Information
  • Acknowledgment
  • Warning
  • Error
Message bars can stack and they can appear 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.

If you click Don't Show Again in the message bar to dismiss it, you can restore the message. See System Options - Dismissed Messages.
