Tooltip for the Mouse

This is a requested app from SevenForums [link] to add text to the mouse. This is the closest I can get. Just run, type in what you want it to say, and click Okay. You will now have a tooltip that contains the text you typed, that will follow the mouse.

I have no idea what will happen if you use this with any other applications that modify tooltips, so if you try to run this app and any other apps as mentioned above, I do not take responsibility.
</ominous warning>

I used Print Screen to take the preview image, so no mouse. But it's there.... trust me.... :)

As with all my apps, they pull up false alerts from antivirus scanners. I advise you disregard these, unless you're paranoid, at which point you can right-click the program and click "Delete".

Have fun :o


EDIT: okay, well, looks like it's getting some attention. Eventually, I'll add the option to let you put the time in the tooltip, like the System Transparency app. I think people will like that. :p

And where to get the help file for the program. Judging by this post: "An Older instance of this script is already running. Replace it with this instance?Note: To avoid this message, see #SingleInstance in the help file.", it should be. And how in this program to place text vertically? Who the official author of this programm?

P.S: orry for my English. Please answer. If something is not clear please ask again.

XD I do a lot of apps as request from other people. I also want to keep them, and post them here so that in case my hard drive crashes (I have no backup drive), I still have them. :)

What an interesting concept. I'd heard of people having a clock on the mouse, but this is neat.

The base for this app is actually off of a piece of my main program System Transparency. It has an option to set a tooltip with the current time in it that follows the mouse, just like this. Instead of the time, though, I set a variable that can be set via the edit box. :p

Thanks, I'll take a look at your other program, as well.
