The method :showBalloonTip() displays a balloon-like information window, similar to a tool tip. Balloon tip windows are typically used to display incorrect input during form validation, and to provide a visual cue as to which entry field contains erroneous data. Use method :hideBalloonTip() to hide the tip window.
Balloon tip interaction and behaviour: The input focus is automatically assigned to the entry field during execution of :showBalloonTip(), allowing the user to correct or change the value entered. If the input focus is set on another user interface element or if no input occurs within a preset interval, the operating automatically hides the balloon tip window.
