#include <globerr.h>

Symbolic Values :

Description :

Assigns the given error code to the given text string. When language compiling, the macro actually amounts to nothing more than a comment. When resource compiling a module (RC), the macro is used to map error code numbers to a corresponding text string.

    Prior to Release 4.5, an alternative form was defined due to a compiler bug in MPW C. The compiler generated an error when a macro evaluated to nothing and is followed by another #define.

    /* "errortext" designates a user-displayed message (success, error, warning).
    This is translated, and may be shown to a user. There should be
    online help for most of these messages. */

    #define errortext(code,text)

Sample Usage :

#define       MSG_ADDIN_NAME  (PKG_ADDIN)
    errortext(MSG_ADDIN_NAME,  "AddIn Name")

#define       MSG_ADDIN_VERSION  (PKG_ADDIN+1)
    errortext(MSG_ADDIN_VERSION,  "Version 7.22+")

#define       ERR_EXAMPLE         (PKG_ADDIN+2)
              "AddIn: Error processing input Database %s")
