    Default Creating Callout shape window

    Hi,

    I would like to create a window that will open as a callout shape.
    Meaning – usually, a window is in a square shaped.
    I would like to open it in a tooltip (or callout) shape.
    I do not mean a tooltip that will open over an HTML page but a window that will be opened as the shape of a tooltip.

    Is it possible?

    Thanks!

    Well, you are misinterpreting the window with callout shape.
    Why do you need to have a window in that shape?
    Should it be a window?

    I don’t want it to be opened over an application.
    I want to open it over the desktop and that it will point an icon/s which seats on the desktop.
    Do you have an alternative that will do so which is not a window? I’ll be glad to hear.
    Anyway, I’ll be glad also to receive solution which will create a window shaped like a tooltip/callout.

    Thanks

    Not a window but an image or whatever you say. Even many look and feels don't support such shapes(as far as i know)
