Hi I'm first time using floating text. But the text does not appear at all...

The script is no problem. Referred to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0WxPx-QGKE for typing in the script. Saving it is no problem

But after set the script on a rezzed square box, it doesn't appear on the box. When I attached the box to my skull, it does not appear either. I'm using SL viewer 2.7 or Beta. Viewed it with my alt avatar, also do not see from client side.

Thanks!

It might have to do with the colour vector you are using.

Or the alpha.  Be sure that the last parameter in the parentheses is 1.0, which is fully opaque.  There aren't very many ways to screw up hover text. :smileytongue:

Or you are too far away.

Floating text is not visible beyond some distance and this distance depends on the object size

The hovertext might not be where you expect it to be.

The height of hovertext is determined entirely by the Z dimension, regardless of the orientation of the object.

If your object is rotated and the Z axis and the Z dimension is much different from whichever one is actually pointed up, the hovertext may appear either on top of the object or way above it.

Sliced, cut, or dimpled objects will have their hovertext appear where it would be if the object were not sliced or dimpled.

I utilize this to place hovertext on buttons in my HUDs.
