    need help with "popup text"

    chris/.,/.,/.,
      I want my user to "mouse within" on some text and when that happens I want a caption to popup on the upper right of the text to describe the origional text.
      I need help. When you explain it, be very detailed.

          You could always use some text in another sprite, and simply control the
          visibility of the sprite. Something like this, assuming the text that
          pops up is in the sprite immediately after the text that's being dragged
          over.

          (For the pop-up text)
          on beginSprite me
          sprite(the currentSpriteNum).visible = false
          end

          (For the text being dragged over)
          on mouseEnter me
          cursor 280
          sprite(the currentSpriteNum + 1).visible = true
          end

          on mouseLeave me
          cursor -1
          sprite(the currentSpriteNum + 1).visible = false
          end

          Is that kind of what you had in mind?
