I've noticed that Fresh can assign icons to the output when the first byte is a digit (currently 0>x<4), so what about making a few small macros that make use of them. I wonder what you (especially JohnFound, maybe this isn't the intended usage, sorry if not) think of them.

Code:
; freshio.inc - include fresh display macros

; Icons:
 FRESH_ICON_WARNING = 1
 FRESH_ICON_ERROR   = 2
 FRESH_ICON_INFO    = 3

macro DispWarn [msg] { common display FRESH_ICON_WARNING, msg}
macro DispErr  [msg] { common display FRESH_ICON_ERROR,   msg}
macro DispInfo [msg] { common display FRESH_ICON_INFO,    msg}

macro DispTodo [msg] { common display FRESH_ICON_INFO,    'TODO: ',msg}
macro DispBug  [msg] { common display FRESH_ICON_WARNING, 'BUG: ', msg}

;Usage:
;DispWarn 'Warnign Message',13,10
;DispErr  'Error Message',13,10
;DispInfo 'Info Message',13,10
;DispTodo 'Implent FooBar processing',13,10
;DispBug  'There is a bug here, needs to be fixed!',13,10     
; output:
[warning icon] Warnign Message
[error icon] Error Message
[info icon] Info Message
[info icon] TODO: Implent FooBar processing
[warning icon] BUG: There is a bug here, needs to be fixed!

Hi Scientica.
Very good idea. Only few notes:

1. The numbers of the icons are between 1 and 4. (Number 4 is empty now) but it is not problem this count to be increased.)
2. The icon number is not neccessary the first char in the message. Actually it have to be inside the message and before CR character. If more than one char with ascii 1..4 exists in the message, the last is valuable.
3. The message have to end with CR (or LF or CR_LF, or LF_CR) because I separate different rows in ListView control by CR_LF at the end.

I think to make possible to be inserted filename/line number info in the messages, but this is for future, because it needs compiler modifications.

Regards.

1 & 2. Ok, but wouldn't it be better to have the first char determinate the icon, and create a DispMsg a macro that uses the "no icon" as the first char? (or possibly override the display directive). Since some people might want to print out some chars like tab (0x9).
3. Should I make the macros append ,13,10 ?

I too think we should have some file-name, line-number pseudoMacros/pseudoEquates

Only ASCII codes 1..4 behaves that way. I don't think someone will use them for any other purpose. BTW: List view control doesn't allow even tab character to be used in the text.

Yea. Only one of them will be enough.

Here's the latest version:
Code:
; freshio.inc - include fresh display macros

; Icons:
 FRESH_ICON_WARNING = 1
 FRESH_ICON_ERROR   = 2
 FRESH_ICON_INFO    = 3
 FRESH_ICON_NONE    = 4

macro DispWarn [msg] { common display msg,FRESH_ICON_WARNING, 10}
macro DispErr  [msg] { common display msg,FRESH_ICON_ERROR,   10}
macro DispInfo [msg] { common display msg,FRESH_ICON_INFO,    10}
macro display  [msg] { common display msg,FRESH_ICON_NONE}        ; over ride of the display directive. Sould make sure that "normal" displays don't have any icon.

macro DispTodo [msg] { common DispInfo 'TODO: ',msg }
macro DispBug  [msg] { common DispWarn 'BUG: ', msg }

;Usage:
;include '<path>\freshio.inc'
;DispWarn 'Warning Message'
;DispErr  'Error Message'
;DispInfo 'Info Message'
;DispTodo 'Implent FooBar processing'
;DispBug  'There is a bug here, needs to be fixed!'
;
;display "test string1",10
;display "test string3",1,5,2
