I tried different ways to identify variable txt and/or numeric values in DW macros by showing them using the DW macros "showMessage" to help in the designing of different macro codes.

I ended up experimenting with the simplest following code:

<macro name="Savenombre">
<task name="defineVariable">
name=filename
message= type your name, please....
</task>
<task name="showMessage">
message=$filename.txt?????????
</task>
</macro>

I got being asked and typing the name, but the "showMessage" did not even appeared, no matter what I tried it to type for the message to get the variable text/value (filename, $filename, name, $name, ±txt, etc, etc).....

Is there any other way to do it?
thank you
julio

There is a simple answer: The 'ShowMessage' task did not do any variable resolution, yet.
In fact, variables are not resolved everywhere. I have built the resolution into various
tasks, where it makes sense, but unfortunately, it is not complete nor consistent yet.
I just added it to the ShowMessage task. Thus, after updating, the following macro will work:

<macro name="Savenombre">
<task name="defineVariable">
name=filename
message= type your name, please....
</task>
<task name="showMessage">
message=$filename
</task>
</macro>

Thank you Thomas !
It is very useful to follow up, confirm and simplify some macro designs........

Sorry Thomas but after updating as recommended in two different computers, the <macro name="Savenombre"> still doesnt work. .....
I am working in Windows 10 64

Could I be making something wrong?

Thank you for your attention
