Form Logic ShowMessage with Variable Information

Does anyone know how to use the ShowMessage Action with variable information?

When you set the ShowMessage Action the system allows you to enter an ID in the Action Controls box but it doesn't seem to do anything. I thought it would put the text value of the ID in the message content but it remains blank. I also tried putting a Session Fieldname and an address for an ID i.e. '[*200*]' but none of these methods puts the text content of the ID or Field in the message.
Any ideas?

Hi Tim,

Instead of using the control ID, you can use the Field Index (zero based) to fill variable info into the Show message action. For Example: "Hi [*2*]" would output a string of "Hi " followed by the value contained in Field 3 (remember zero based).
