    Please display messages that references the arcpy.AddMessage() function in source python code that runs custom geoprocessing widgets when consumed from a geoprocessing service in Web AppBuilder.  When one runs the geoprocessing service from the GP service REST endpoint, any print messages that reference arcpy.AddMessage() function in the source script are shown as the job is submitted and run.  Is it possible for those messages to be displayed in the Geoprocessing Widget window when the job is being run to provide the user with some informational messages so they know something's happening?
