That looks like hint text. You can send Csay, Hint Text, menus, and console messages. You cannot send text that is positioned where you specify on the screen or change the color of text.

I wish, since I was trying to do a timer.

I forgot one other message: the valve plugin message interface allows you to put a colored text message in the upper left corner of the screen. It has a "time" parameter, but doesn't allow you to specify anything less than 10 seconds.

I believe it is issued through 'CreateDialog' in SourceMod.

Edit:
I believe you would want something like...
Code:
new Handle:values = CreateKeyValues("msg");
KvSetString(values, "title", "This is a test message");
KvSetNum(values, "level", 1); // kind of a z-order if you will.. messages with lower values take precedent over messages with higher values
KvSetString(values, "time", 10); // seconds

CreateDialog(clientIndex, values, DialogType_Msg);

CloseHandle(values); // free up mem

Thanks dude, your so smart

but it didnt work, maybe something on my part..

Code:
		new Handle:values = CreateKeyValues("testmsg","title","this is title");
		//KvSetString(values, "title", "This is a test message");
		KvSetString(values, "msg", "This is a test message");
		KvSetNum(values, "level", 1); // kind of a z-order if you will.. messages with lower values take precedent over messages with higher values
		KvSetNum(values, "time", 11);

		CreateDialog(client, values, DialogType_Msg);

		CloseHandle(values); // free up mem
you had CreateKeyValues("msg"); which didnt work, so i opened the include and looked, i opened the headerfile in sdk of the iserverplugins.h as well - not much help there either because the key values. i also tried creating it with the 4 diff dialog types as well as using createkeyvalues of ("msg","msg","msg"); which from what i understand would name the message being sent "msg", and make the key value of "msg" = "msg" so it would display "msg". but that didnt work either, go figure.

any suggestions to try? im just looking for that upper left hand corner display
