A simple display

Hello everyone

I have tried to write a very simple addon that would display a very large number on the screen like "1" or "5" , or maybe some very short text like "MOVE" and as I am so new I did not know what frame object to use. I have tried MessageFrame and have used the largest font "GameFontHighlightLarge" but it is still too small and I do not like the way MessageFrame scrolls messages either.

The way I imagine it would be like so:

1) create the widget
2) position the widget - make sure it is transparent to clicks
3) set the text on the widget like "MOVE" which appears in very, very large letters
4) clear the widget so the screen is clean again
5) set some other text maybe
6) size the widget in code so it does not need to be sizeable
7) move the widget to get it away from important screen areas would be nice but can also be done in code

Any suggestions would be welcome
