Accessing & Editing Rollover tips.

I would like to know if anyone has been able to add information to rollover tips. I would like to send some strings to display along with the typical information that you see when you roll over a block object. Oh and don't forget the part where I want to do it with Lisp. :smileyvery-happy:

Ideas or similar accomplishments would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi,

AFAIK those tips are not exposed in ActiveX API. I'm afraid that the only
way to do it, is using the .NET API or ARX.

I think you *might* be able to do it within a (grread...) loop, using temporary MTEXT to display the information. Look for "Dynamic Leader" for examples.

Hi,

I think that the OP wants to edit the existing tips, adding some extra info
to the existing one, not to create his own tips.

That is true that I would much rather add to the rollover tips they are much easier to read and look pretty :smileyvery-happy:

But I am open to any and all ideas.

But unfortunately you won't be able to hover and to make it pop. Most
probably, if you will be able to create it using (grread..) and stuff, you
will have to select an entity in order to make it pop.
