Is it possible in WebFocus to add a comment string and/or a Field Popup to a report's Parameter Screen.

Want to add some instructions to users to follow when entering a Report Parameter but can't find any information on this topic in the WF documentation or searching in this forum.

Thanks- JR

Hi Jeff,

I've had a look through the parmater prompting code and can not see anything obvious on how you could effect this.

It might be worth a support call, but I'm guessing that this is unlikely to provide you with any other alternate answer.

Yeah - they didn't really intend that auto-prompting screen to handle anything more complicated than filling in a few values. Your best bet would be to just create your own launch screen with the HTML composer.
