@ZappoMan See https://worklist.net/20073 for a use case for the text billboard that you're considering. It would be greaet to be able to update the text while it's displayed.
Also, I've added a few methods to Overlays and BillboardOverlay in order to create and set overlay properties from C++.
Thinking about billboard text display ... Initially, I suppose, the font type could be fixed and the text could be scaled to fill the height of the billboard text overlay, say. ... Next step to consider might be HTML formatting of text. ... Then, what about full "Web page" display - HTML specified by C++ or JavaScript, or URL specified; rendered by an embedded browser. ... Could be quite powerful, especially if the HTML document object model was exposed to Interface's scripting?
