    Default How to use this Formula,"Formula That Returns Strings"?

    I got this in the wikihelp, "Formula That Returns Strings","IF (Length < 900, “Opening too narrow”, “Opening OK”)"

    but how to use it?
    Is that the string will pop up like a message box?

    You use it as the formula in something like a parameter. E.g here's a sample of a door family's parameters using formulas:

    You use that IF function when the parameter you place the forumla into is a text parameter. E.g. say you'd want to indicate in the Door's param what type of lintel is used depending on the width of the door. So here I add a Text Parameter
    capture_01042013_111753.jpg
    And then adding even nested if's to show more options:
