I am walking thru the "Building a Management Model" tutorial.

On step 3 in "To add instrumentation to the management model: "
The directions are "In the Properties window for the new parameter, enter Database name: {1} for the Message Template property"

The properties windows has a "Template Index" property (which is an Int32) not a "Message Template property"

The Message Template is actually a property of the Event object not the Event Parmeter object

You're right, something is wrong in that description. The "Database name: {1}" is indeed a Message Template for the Event. For the (named) Event Parameter of the higher level (abstract) Event you could use something like "DatabaseName" - the name itself is not particularly important.
