Is there a way in U++ to make popup window like balloon?
Actually I have a list of items, and, on pressing "Add item" button, I'd like to show balloon like popup-window (pointing to this control) with edit control and a button inside it.

There are either multiple solutions or none, depending on requirements:
- If the balloon has to be a native window then you will need to do the platform specific code yourself. This should be relatively easy in Win32, much more difficult in X11 (at least for a solution that works across window managers).
- The easiest solution would be to cheat. Create a type of Parent ctrl that looks like a balloon and use that instead. The restiction here is that obviously it can't leave the parent window.
