Both Band-in-a-Box for Windows and RealBand log a copy of the green and yellow pop-up messages to a file named "FlashMessageLog.txt". Each program has its own text file. Band-in-a-Box stores its text file at bb\Data\Logs while RealBand stores its text file at RealBand\Data.

My suggestion is for the Band-in-a-Box plugin to log a copy of the green and yellow pop-up messages it displays in a "FlashMessageLog.txt" created specific for the plugin.

Since the text file would be plugin specific a great file storage location is bb\BBPlugin\Files.

This was also mentioned from a different perspective in the Plugin beta forum, where there is a suggestion to have a Help menu that could show the log as one of its selections.

Thank you Adar. I"m looking forward to seeing the log file in a future release.
