Hello Coders! I need to implements a functionality that resembles to Components.setToolTipText(). My GUI consisting of an Image, textfield and a button. When the button pressed I want the textfield�s input to be shown on a � balloon� that attached to the image and disappeared after a few seconds. I�ll implement it by dynamically adding the �balloon� in response to button�s action and remove it after a few second. What object I need to use for providing a timer, which can tells the component(balloon) to be removed after a few seconds?
Hi Shay, If you are using JDK 1.2 or newer you should use the javax.swing.Timer object. Regards, Manfred.

Thanks for the reply By setting setToolTipText() to a component , whenever you mouse over that component it displays the tip bar on topmost layer. In my program architecture I need to extend Jpanel with an image and with a draw of a balloon. Whenever I use this Jpanel I need the balloon to be the topmost layer within the framework. How can I control the z-index over the GUI? How can I provide a topmost layer�s behavior? Thanks in advance
