By using Inspect Elements feature of Google Chrome, you'll find all fields IDs. For your Message field, the id is #input_7
Please take a look at this video: http://www.screencast.com/t/lKR9L9vqvH

And what about with Firefox? That is what I use.
By the way, I took a look at Google Chrome from another PC and, OMG, there is no way I can find an #input_ information data for a field--there is way too much computer jibberish to wade through! I hope there is a better way with Firefox!
A suggestion: put the info in the Properties page of each field.
Firefox unfortunately does not have the Inspect Element feature like Chrome that's why Chrome, because of that and several other reasons, is our preferred browser.
I'll make sure to refer this to our developers, to have every field - Message box included - have the ID in the Properties. Thanks!
Thanks pinoytech for the video explanation! I see now that doing it that way is easier than I thought!
And, Morian, I did find that Firefox v20 has the Inspect Element; so now it will be easy to find the ID numbers. Thanks for passing along my suggestion, which should still be a big help to everyone.
Fixed. Please do note, however, that it will only display field details for Plain Text and Fullscreen modes.
The Rich Text mode is a different beast and we strongly advise against customizing it.
Have a great day!
