is there a way to send a sessionMessage without a form.
It is supposed to be a response to an action.

you can check this with PHP, if you have access to this method without create the object form.If this doesn't work, you can create a Javascript or you create a simple PHP method to send a response like sessionMessage.

Thanks for your response,

I was hoping there was something already built in ;-)
Sth like the flash technique in Rails, where a message could be saved in the session and would be shown on the next page.

Have fun,

I don't know if there's a way already set in SS to do it, but alternatively you can set the variable session in PHP.

   $FormInfo = array("NameOfTheFormOrWhatever" => array("formError" => array( "message" => "your message", "type" => "good")) );

   Session::set("FormInfo",  array_merge( Session::get("FormInfo"), $FormInfo  ) );

The array_merge thing is just to not overwrite other form variables in case there were.

I guess you probably new this. But just in case I post it.
