#' Show a nice message when a shiny app disconnects or errors
#'
#' A shiny app can disconnect for a variety of reasons: an unrecoverable error occurred in
#' the app, the server went down, the user lost internet connection, or any other reason
#' that might cause the shiny app to lose connection to its server.\cr\cr
#' Call `disonnectMessage()`
#' anywhere in a Shiny app's UI to add a nice message when this happens. Works
#' locally (running Shiny apps within RStudio) and on Shiny servers (such as shinyapps.io,
#' RStudio Connect, Shiny Server Open Source, Shiny Server Pro).\cr\cr
#' See the [demo Shiny app](https://daattali.com/shiny/shinydisconnect-demo/) online for examples.\cr\cr
#' Note that it's not possible to distinguish between errors and timeouts - they will both
#' show the same message.
#'
#' You can also use [`disconnectMessage2()`] to use a pre-set combination of parameters
#' that produces a large centered message.
#'
#' @param text The text to show in the message.
#' @param refresh The text to show in a link that allows the user to refresh the page.
#' Use `refresh = ""` if you don't want to show a refresh link.
#' @param width The width of the message box. Must be either an integer, or the string
#' `"full"` to make the message take up the entire page width.
#' @param top The distance from the message to the top of the page. Must be either
#' an integer, or the string `"center"` to make the box vertically centered.
#' @param size The font size of the text. (integer).
#' @param background The background colour of the message box.
#' @param colour The colour of the text of the message box.
#' @param overlayColour The colour of the overlay to draw on the page behind the message box.
#' An overlay is used to "grey out" the application and draw attention to the message. Use
#' `overlayOpacity = 0` to disable the overlay.
#' @param overlayOpacity The opacity of the overlay, from 0 (fully transparent/not visible) to 1
#' (fully opaque). Use `overlayOpacity = 0` to disable the overlay.
#' @param refreshColour The colour of the refresh text link
#' @param css Any additional CSS rules to apply to the message box. For example,
#' `css = "padding: 0 !important; border: 3px solid red;"` will remove padding and add a border.
#' Note that you may need to use the `!important` rule to override default styles.
