Balloon Interface

Represents the balloon where the Office Assistant displays information.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Office.Core
Assembly:  office (in office.dll)

public interface Balloon : _IMsoDispObj

A balloon can contain controls such as check boxes and labels.

Use the NewBalloon property to return a Balloon object. There isn't a collection for the Balloon object; only one balloon can be visible at a time. However, it's possible to define several balloons and display any one of them when needed.

Use the Show method to make the specified balloon visible. Use the Callback property to run procedures based on selections from modeless balloons (balloons that remain visible while a user works in the application). Use the Close method to close modeless balloons.

You can reuse balloon objects you've already created by assigning the object to a variable and displaying the variable when you need it.

Alternatively, instead of using separate variables, you can place the balloon object into an array.
