How do I create a text pop-up (much the same as selecting Create - Hotspot - Text Pop-up in a new document) but from within lotusscript?

I'm creating a report, writing details to a new mail memo using a richtext item and the AppendText method, and I'd like to display extended information when the user hovers their mouse over particular text.

You cannot do it using only LotusScript, it's possible only in design elements.

It would probably be possible to write a dll using C API for L/N and then use the functions in LS.

I would consider building a form for your email, with this capability built in, rather than using the standard Memo form.

I hope this helps !

the C API examples provide example for building hotspot using API . It seems that it quite possible to call all these API functions from LotusScript to create a hotspot (although it would require defining many of these API functions - long and tedious process).
If you decide to go this route, there is an excellent resource for this http://www.ls2capi.com/ 
Definitely worth the money, helped me many times

One more thing,
I don't know, haven't tried, but maybe you can modify this code to do what you want:

SysExpert,
then all other users would have to have that form in their mail dbs or you would have to store form in document...

Thanks All.
Guru, using DXL looks promising. The only problem is I have to create quite a few hotspots dynamically. I have a collection of selected documents from a view which I'm looping through displaying the Title field from each document in a table. Upon mouseover of Title I hope to display the contents of a Description field as a hotspot text popup.
I may be a little out of my depth modifying the code, but I'll give it a go & report back...
