    As I ate my toast for breakfast and sat in front of my Hollywood stuff I thought: We need some message systems like Android Toasts for MorphOS. I think on OS4 there's Ringhio providing such a functionality. I guess this would be a rather easy to implement feature and while not revolutionary it's pretty handy though. Could something like that please added to MorphOS?
    I personally would like it very much as Hollywood supports these messages now on systems providing such a messaging system - but on MorphOS it yields some ugly console output..

    MagicBeacon exists for years. Ask Geit to add it ;).

    I think MagicBeacon is a bit more and a bit different, but could probably be used for it.
    i would prefer just a plain messaging system that doesn't do anything by itself, but only if called by applications via according API calls. Best case IMHO if realized as a MUI class.

    Just for the record, I tried to add MagicBeacon support to Hollywood but had some trouble getting it to work. Wrote an email to geit on Dec 28th, never got a reply, so that explains the console fallback :)

    What problems did you had? Maybe I can help!
    I used MagciBeacon in my otrMUI app.

    Well, if it's on jacadcaps list I think I might just wait for the official version...

    One can also use SendRexxCommand() to show a bubble with MagicBeacon
    Code:

    Function p_MOSToast(text$, t)
    Local str$
    str$ = "BUBBLE \""..text$.."\""
    If HaveItem(t, "x") Then str$ = str$.." X "..t.x
    If HaveItem(t, "Y") Then str$ = str$.." Y "..t.y
    If HaveItem(t, "Font") Then str$ = str$.." Font \""..t.font.."\""
    If HaveItem(t, "Skin") Then str$ = str$.." Skin \""..t.skin.."\""
    If HaveItem(t, "Image") Then str$ = str$.." Image "..t.image
    If HaveItem(t, "Color") Then str$ = str$.." Color "..t.color
    If HaveItem(t, "Mouse") Then str$ = str$.." MOUSE"
    If HaveItem(t, "Center") Then str$ = str$.." CENTER"
    If HaveItem(t, "Duration") Then str$ = str$.." Duration "..t.duration
    SendRexxCommand("MAGICBEACON", str$)
    EndFunction

    p_MOSToast("Hello", {mouse=true, font = "Lux/26", Skin="Woo0t", image="Connected"})


    But SendRexxCommand() seems to have a problem with quotes in the command!?
    Although I use a backslash quote to surround the text with quotes, it only works if you don't use spaces in your text!
