bubble help for interface palette icons

Hi - I have made a couple of scripts with the help of the knowledgeable people hanging out on this forum. A big thank you to everybody.  It's been a bit of a learning curve but I'm starting to get a better grip on the Python SDK.

Unfortunately this brings me to another bit that I am unclear about.  I've added the finished scripts to the C4D script folder and created icons for them.  I've used the "Customize Commands" menu selection to add them to my interface and all is working well except one thing.  I would like to add some text to the bubble help.  Right now it just shows the name of the script twice.  I would like to change that second line to contain information like the built-in items have.

Do these have to be plug-ins for that to happen?

Any pointers towards documentation would be great.

thanks in advance - .del

Afaik, it is not possible to change the bubble help for a script.

Thanks Niklas.    I'll look at what it takes to make plugins out of my scripts.

Hi .del,

have a look at the free tutorial 'Distributing Python Scripts' at cineversity.com.
Rick Barrett shows the use of script headers to define the language specific name and description of a Python script.

I didn't know that. Thanks for the info, no-photo.
To sum it up from here: http://www.cineversity.com/vidplaytut/distributing_python_scripts/
You can add a header to your script like this:

Script Name etc...

Some extra info
Name-US: Cool Script
