I'd suggest you to use one of the following options (or their combination):
- prompt
- hint
- tooltip

All of these are available in item's property palette.

Fine with me; please, start programming. Let us know when you finish and - don't forget to share the code!

From my point of view, three options I mentioned in my previous message are more than enough to do what you are asking (in a different manner, though, but hey! It's me, I'm happy with that! You - you'll create a brand new functionality).
