Hi

On my interface I have a help button and I was hoping to add a popup window with some hints inside it, whenever a user clicks on the help button.

Is this the way most people would deal with a help button?

Also, could anyone point me in the right direction for this? where can i get started with this as I have been unable to find specific examples to do this.

I just want to have a new window and add some text to it, and for the user to be able to close the window when they're ready to continue with the game.

Hope someone can point me in the right direction with this as the books and sites I have visited haven't been very clear(at least to me anyway!).

Thanks very much
