Help Cues

Hi,
Does anyone know if its possible to produce help cues in a labview
programme similar to those found in applications such as Microsoft word.
The cues I am talking about are the pop-up explanations about icons that
appear when you leave the mouse cursor over an icon (the ones that appear in
yellow boxes).

Regards,
Martin.

Commonly known as tool tips under Windows, this feature isn't currently
available in LabVIEW, though it's been a frequently requested addition.

Until it does become a built-in feature, you'll have to look for a third-party
solution or create something similar on your own. A fellow named George Zou has
implemented what I believe is a Windows-only version of tool tips for LabVIEW;
it's currently mentioned on his main page (http:
//rtprint.yeah.net).
