Hints

A hint is a section of text with a black backround at the bottom of your screen. You can no longer insert hints using the object browser so you have to do it with a script.

To create a hint with a script you would use this:

msg = Instance.new("Hint")
msg.Parent = game.workspace
msg.Name = Message
msg.Text = "Displayed Text"

or if you are using the command bar you can type this in:

Instance.new("Hint").Parent = game.workspace

A hint has 3 editable properties. These properties are

Text - The text being displayed on the screen

Name - The hints name

Archivable - Can it be saved or not

These are the three properties you can edit. There are some locked ones you can edit with scripts.
