  • bell_msg [message]


When a bell character is sent to a background window, screen displays a notification in the message line. The notification message can be redefined by this command. Each occurrence of % in message is replaced by the number of the window to which a bell has been sent, and each occurrence of ^G is replaced by the definition for bell in your termcap (usually an audible bell). The default message is “Bell in window %n”.

An empty message can be supplied to the bell_msg command to suppress output of a message line (bell_msg “”). Without parameter, the current message is shown.
