PopupBalloon

The PopupBallon library allows you to create a "floating" popup balloon with any contents that can be pointed at a given rect. This functionality is useful for displaying information blurbs, or even interactive controls, related to items when the items are clicked on or moused-over. The balloon automatically orients and positions itself so that it is pointing at a specified rect while staying within the visible area of the current card.



The following is a Revlet demo of the popup balloon library. Click on a rectangle to see a popup balloon about that rectange. Notice that the balloon automatically positions itself so that it is completely within the visible area of the revlet.


You can download the PopupBalloon archive here, which contains the library as well as detailed documentation and instructions.
