What it does
Visual Balloons is the easiest way to add Balloon Help to your
PowerPlant projects. With Visual Balloons, you simply drag a help
balloon from the PowerPlant Catalog window to any of your PowerPlant
Panes, and Visual Balloons does the rest!

+ Seamless integration with PowerPlant Constructor
+ Easy to use through Drag & Drop
+ No sublcassing required
+ Installs in less than 5 minutes
+ only two additional lines of code to write
+ supports "embedded" strings, styled text, 'STR ' and 'STR#'
resources, and PICTs

System Requirements
Visual Balloons will work on any computer that has System 7 or later
installed. Visual Balloons disables itself automatically when running

must support those resources (I think CTYPs have been supported since CW

What's new in this release (reverse chronological order) DR 2 + Easier
to use: there are now only two 68K libraries, one for model near and one
