For that, it is not even needed to do any programming.

As you will need an active element to determine the hover area, you
would add a field (most likely a button with no visual attributes).
Then you would set the short description of that field.

And that's it.

If you want to change the short description of the field
programmatically, you can access it, by using the userName Field Object
property.

Hope, this can help.
