Developing a custom speech bubble

I am new to BB10 application development. I am building an BB10 app where the user needs to be able to add speech bubbles (think comics) over OpenGL surface. I have some questions on how to implement this,

  • Should i build a custom component? can you help me to build the appropriate one?
  • Allow the user to move the speech bubble using touch- Any pointers or examples would be great!
  • Also resize the speech depending on the amount of text - Any pointers or examples would be great!

Please i need your help!!

Re: Developing a custom speech bubble

You should be able to accomplish this by doing a Cascades Foriegn Window overlay over the OpenGL ES surface.  Please review the following to see if this approach would address your use case.
