I always wonder why the Message window is NOT read-only. The negative impact is clearly mentioned in the Answer of this question. Why not it is read-only...?

I would have chosen the correct answer, except I can't think of how to type text to show in red the Messages tab. Can someone help me out with that?

I assume you can run any statement after you have "temporarily disabled access" to the file.
Then add the black text into the results tab.

But just a thought. (If that is possible at all)

It is possible to replicate the results,


Open up a query window to a database and type in "SELECT * FROM sys.master_files", then open "activity monitor" and kill the SPID which corresponds to the Query window.
Now execute the query, and you'll get the red Transport-Level error. Move cursor into the Message window and add the "Formatting" error in black, and hey presto, Prankus Maximus.

Like it :) Must remember this one.. hehe.

P.S. Putting the question in the category 'Humour' kinda gives it away though

Thanks for the explanation, Nick!
I picked another answer after deciding I could neither fake a message tab nor the red font color.
(Remind me not to be interviewed by you!)

The category of the question 'humor' gave the answer away. You should have left it un categorized.
