gw.text is cool, but seems to have some limitations such as only appearing in the active viewport, somewhat hard to read (regardless of the color), and flashes when redrawing.

I'd like to tap into the power of Max's native toolip capabilities (like when you hold the cursor over a model, and it's name appears next to the cursor, with a box drawn around the text). This tooltip text is much easier to read than gw.text, and doesn't have the flashing issues.

Is it possible to script with these tooltips?
