I am developing an oracle application (form) form version is 11.0.30
I have an error message popped up in  the toolbar and the message is just too long and I cannot read all, it's cut off. So, how can I make the message two line in the toolbar. I have the following code to catch error message (errbuf). How to automatically create second line in the toobar bar

IF retcode = 0 THEN
               message('a request created successfully');
      END IF;

            WHEN others THEN

You cannot create 2 line message in a toolbar. If you want to display long message then the best way is creating a form and display message there.
