Callouts/textbox

Hi,

I've got a csv file with some data including x and y values. I'm using the x and y values to place spheres within the VR. I am now trying to add a callout or textbox above each sphere that holds the data allocated to that specific sphere from the CSV.

I can't seem to find the functionality to add a textbox. I have found <viz>.addTextbox but that seems to be for the user to input text. I can add the text without a container but then it looks a mess. I also encountered a problem in that I couldn't change the text to the size I wanted. Is size 1 the smallest possible?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You could add text in the world above the objects. Take a look at the 2d and 3D text tutorial. Does that work for you?

Hi Jeff,

Unfortunately that doesn't really suit my needs. Some of the spheres are very close to each other. Without a box or similar it is impossible to tell which text is assigned to which sphere.

Why not write 3D text, and put a white texture quad behind it? Texure quads

If you make the texture quads have 0 depth, it would be like having a paper thin sheet with writing on it above each sphere.
