<h2>Project Description</h2>
The <strong>Error Message Generator</strong> (ErrorGen) is a simple
program that generates customized error dialogs. The idea was inspired
by a web-based error generator which created <em>images</em> of error
boxes. My program, however, creates "real" error boxes that can be
dragged around the screen and interacted with.<p>
The command-line, scriptable version of Error Message Generator is called
<strong>ZenMsg</strong>, named after the GNOME utility, Zenity. It's
a version of the generator that can be provoked from batch files and
<li>Fully customizable error box: select the title, icon,
and message.</li>
<li>Create up to THREE buttons for the error box and specify
what each of them say, and which ones are "greyed out"</li>
<li>Advanced features to make the error keep coming back until
the right button is selected.</li>
<li>A button that minimizes and renames the control window,
leaving only the error dialog visible on screen.</li>

<h2 style="margin-top: 0px">ZenMsg</h2>
ZenMsg is a command-line version of Error Message Generator that
can be invoked by batch files or scripts. Example usage:
<pre style="overflow-x: auto">ZenMsg --error -t "An error has occurred." -b "Abort" -b "Retry" -b "Fail"</pre>
The executable comes with an HTML help file. <code>ZenMsg -?</code>
will display the same help file at the command line. The document
describes how to use ZenMsg.<p>
There is no binary Linux version of this utility. The source code
however is available and will execute under Linux; I've just not
compiled a standalone executable (there are a handful of other
utilities that do the job: see
<a href="">Zenity</a>. Source code
is available on the Downloads tab.
