Custom IControl tooltips for displaying values

I’m in need of a way to show the value of a parameter while the user is dragging the control. I want to be able to do this using a custom IControl, but I don’t know how I would remove it after a certain time has passed since the user last tweaked a control. I attach the control on OnParamChange. What would be the best way to do this? Thanks

This is not a good idea. OnParamChange() can be called on the audio thread. In anycase, its best to create your controls in the “layout function” and hide/show as necessary. Are you aware of the bubble control?

Tick show bubble here and move the IVKnobControl

Thanks, that’s exactly what I was looking for!
