Default Listing selected tracks in message box

As part of another LUA script I'd like to list all selected tracks' tracknames in a message box window.
Is this possible and how would I do this?
Thanks

One way or another?
PHP Code:
    
    t 
= {}
    
count_sel_tracks reaper.CountSelectedTracks(0)
    if 
count_sel_tracks == or count_sel_tracks 16 then return end
    
for i=0count_sel_tracks-do
      
local track_for_name reaper.GetSelectedTrack(0,i)
      
_name_of_sel_track reaper.GetSetMediaTrackInfo_Stringtrack_for_name'P_NAME'0false)
      
string_track_length string.len(name_of_sel_track)
      if 
string_track_length 22 then
        name_of_sel_track 
string.sub(name_of_sel_track016) ..
        
'...'..string.sub(name_of_sel_trackstring_track_length-4string_track_length)
      elseif 
string_track_length == 0 then
        name_of_sel_track 
"Track untitled "..i+
      end
      
if count_sel_tracks-1 then
        table
.insert(t,name_of_sel_track .. ',')
      else
        
table.insert(t,name_of_sel_track)
      
end
    end
    
    inputs_names 
table.concat(t)
  
    
local retvalretvals_csv reaper.GetUserInputs('Show tracks names'count_sel_tracksinputs_names'')
  
    if 
retval then
      
return
    else return 
end

Alternatively you can just use this:

Code:
message = ""
for i = 0, reaper.CountSelectedTracks(0) - 1 do
	local thisTrack = reaper.GetSelectedTrack(0, i)
	local trackIndex = tostring(reaper.GetMediaTrackInfo_Value(thisTrack, "IP_TRACKNUMBER")):gsub("%.0", "")
	local retval, trackName = reaper.GetTrackName(thisTrack)

	message = message .. trackIndex .. " = " .. trackName .. "\n" --displays the actual track number (i.e. it is track #2 out of every track)
	-- message = message .. i+1 .. " = " .. trackName .. "\n" --displays the selected track number (i.e. it is the second selected track)
end

if message:len() > 0 then reaper.ShowMessageBox("Selected Track Names:\n\n" .. message, "Selected Track Names", 0) end
