I posted the following question to the Brains forum, but it seems that not many monitor that thread. So I'll ask it here.

"What is the OEM code to write text to the "Status" area located at the bottom of Mach's Program-Run screen?"

I'd like to write a status message when the "Racking Control" brain issues an e-stop so that I know why the system was stopped.

Not sure how you would accomplish that from a Brain but you could have a macropump looking out for a signal from a Brain and have it write to the Status window.
The VB for that is

message("your text here")

You could also have a message box pop up on screen that you have to click Ok to, I find them better as it assures you have seen it, I often dont see status messages for a while  :D

MsgBox("your text here")
