Hi guys, just a quick post to show you how to add custom messages to your code snippets that you are displaying on your web page. An example is on the blog below (code shown below look at the top right hand corner) where I wanted to add extra usability to the code snippets by tell you that you can double click them to edit or copy the code held within them. Which I thought was not particularly obvious, especially if you have not seen it done before.

}, 5000);
