Anyone out there knows if it is possible to use the assistant in my own program?

Actually, my question is, the text bubble of the Office Assistant is probably available in some dll or something. Is it possible to use the bubble already implemented by microsoft and hence use the text bubble to output my own text strings in my VB program? Is there some API or something?

Thanks.

Thanks a lot.

I know of MSAgent, but that's not what I'm looking for. Right now, I'm just finding out ways to output similar text bubbles using my program. I won't need to use Robbie.

Thanks anyway.

Have you looked at the ToolTipText property for controls?

Yes, but the bubble is very squarish...
I'm looking for more towards the look of the bubble as used in Office Agent or MSAgent.

Thanks anyway.
