Question Question Question Question 32

The message box contains a symbol consisting of a question mark in a circle. The question mark message icon is no longer recommended because it does not clearly represent a specific type of message and because the phrasing of a message as a question could apply to any message type. In addition, users can confuse the question mark symbol with a help information symbol. Therefore, do not use this question mark symbol in your message boxes. The system continues to support its inclusion only for backward compatibility.
