Popup with arrows to bring focus

Question asked by Lindsen Cruz on Jan 13, 2017

I'm creating a macro to scan the notes in a view inside a drawing. Say I want the macro to bring to my attention all the notes with text containing some specific word.

 

I've found `ShowBubbleTooltipAt2` which almost does what I wanted except it takes in x,y position relative to the window and not the drawing.

 

So my questions are:

  1. Is there a way to get a note's position that is not relative to the drawing but Solidwork's window instead?
  2. Or is there another way to show popup notes than can point to notes? Preferably something with a message and an arrow pointing to said note.

 

I know I can put in annotations to the drawing or change the note's TextFormat instead, but if possible, I want something that can't be saved into the drawing or is temporary.
