Message or tooltip when waiting for click in macro

Question asked by Chris Griffith on Feb 19, 2021

I have a macro for different materials that starts with a main menu with 4 different material type buttons.  When you click on one of the buttons the menu disappears and the macro then waits for the user to click somewhere within the model view to get the x, y, & z coordinates of the mouse pointer and then inserts a part in that location.  It works great but if the user isn't familiar with the macro and doesn't realize that the macro is waiting for them to click to place the part they may think that the macro is loading or just isn't doing anything.

 

I would like to add a message somewhere or some kind of tooltip attached to the mouse pointer that says "Click in model view to place part".  

 

Is this possible and if so what would be the best way to go about doing this?

 

Thanks
