    what do you call it when

    you hover the cursor (mouse pointer) over something for a while and then a ballon or small window pops up? I would like to add this feature to my program, but I don't know what it is called so I can research how to do it.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
