 +====== Messages in product configuration ======
 +
 +Messages may be displayed to users either in configurator (e.g. in attribute labels) or in responder.
 +
 +They may also be used to enforce product business rules because if displayed, they may render product incomplete. 
 +
 +Messages are similar to product rules - they both have a condition that is evaluated against the current product configuration.  If message condition evaluates to 1 (true), this message may be displayed in the responder, and/or product configuration may be rendered incomplete. 
 +\\
 +Message conditions are evaluated after product rules have been executed (after user selects an attribute, product rules are executed followed by message condition evaluation).
 +
 +
 +<note>
 +In order to retrieve message text (and use it e.g. in attribute labels), tag <*CTX(Product.Validation(message name))*> should be used.
 +This tag shouldn't be used in product rules because it may return incorrect values due to execution dependency between rules and message evaluation.
 +\\
 +Message can be displayed in the responder and in the attribute label (via tag) at the same time.
 +</note>
 +
 +In order to translate content of product message, syntax <nowiki>{{Dictionary_Key}}</nowiki> can be used. This will retrieve value from selected dictionary with key Dictionary_Key.
