Well, there is the ToolTip widget in RAP, which mostly looks like this.
You can use RAP theming to change details like background and shadow.
However, it's limited regarding its content (plain text and one image
only), and it also doesn't support the "BALLOON" flag that gives it the
"tail"/pointer. If you don't require the pointer or widgets inside the
ToolTip, thats the one to use. If you want widgets inside, a shell could
be styled/themed like a ToolTip.
If you want that ballon look, its more complicated. We considered many
times to implement such pointers for certain widgets, but it proves to
be complicated for several reasons. Having said that, here is what could do:
1) Open an enhancement bug on bugzilla and wait for us to do it. The
problem is obviously that neither of us knows when that would happen.
However, just supporting the BALLOON flag for ToolTip should be
manageable work. I'm pretty sure it would be in Kepler.
2) I think it might be possible to hack the shell to achieve the effect.
I could give you some pointer, but remember it would be a hack, and I'm
not sure it would work out.
