Turn system messages on or off.


   WarningsOn    Use True (-1) to turn on the display of system messages
                 and False (0) to turn them off.

If system messages are turned off in Visual Basic, they must be turned back on, or they will remain off, even if the user presses CTRL+BREAK or Visual Basic encounters a breakpoint.

You can create a macro that turns the display of system messages on and then assign that macro to a key combination. You could then use the macro to restore system messages if they have been turned off in Visual Basic.
