The STATUS tag generally displays at the top of the main menu to show relevant status messages for the web interface. The tag has no additional specifications, as the text of the status itself is customizable within the ILLiad Customization Manager under Web Interface | Status Lines. All status lines within the DLL are customizable and not hard-coded. An example of how this tag would display in the HTML:
It's common to put the status line at the top of the web form, but you can place it wherever it may be best visible. In some cases, there may be more than one status line separated by line breaks. For example, if a user attempts to submit a request and there are several required fields missing values, each error message would have its own line. So while there would only be one STATUS tag in the HTML, the resulting text may be several lines long in a few instances.
