Very cool plugin. This plugin adds a nice visual refresh to the standard alert message. The choice of colors make this plugin flexible and usable in many different scenarios. Great Job! Jake

Add beautiful and smooth slidedown popup messages in your app! 3 colors available,
add them to any function or screen, fully customizable, and documentation included!

Note: this is NOT a screen you should link too. All you need to do after installing this plugin is download your project and reference the code wherever you like with a few lines given in the MessageBarHelpGuide.pdf.

Those few lines of code will tell your app where the message should show up, for how long, what it says, what colour it is, and so on!
