How to do tooltips

Hi all,

I'm working on a plugin that needs to show tooltips
near code fragments in the editor, similar to IDEA's
parameter info tooltips (Ctrl+P).

I'm trying to get a feel for what's involved in doing
this but since I'm neither a Swing nor an IDEA OpenAPI
expert, I could use some pointers in the right direction.

Thanks in advance,
Thomas

To get an idea of the swing part, look at root panes and layered panes in
the java tutorial:
