Print message on the screen

Hello everyone
After much research on the web about how to print a message on the screen (not in the chat) game I did not find what I was interested. Can you tell me how?

Thank you in advance

There are different ways depending on how you want the message to behave. For example, you can use message() to show a basic popup with your message and an "Okay" button. You can use UIErrorsFrame:AddMessage() if you just want to have text pop up in the middle of your screen. If you want to have text pop up at any determined spot, you'll need to set up a FontString and manage showing/hiding the text yourself.
