C# TaskDialog.Show

Hi All,

I have spent more time than I care to admit on this.

How can I get a TaskDialog.Show to show my entire list for ViewPlan.Name?

I am using the builtin MacroManager, SharpDevelop

Thanks

string message = “”;

foreach()

message += view.Name;
}

TaskDialog.Show(“Names”, message);

Thanks Sean,
I feel I understand the message/taskbox now. it takes a ‘string’ and only a single string. I kept feeding it a list of strings.

We are concatenating the string, not appending, or adding or joining. I could not find or figure this out.
Thanks
