I have been searching for a while not and cannot figure this out. I need a permanent box on the screen (Right side) with numbers that update from a script.

I have yet to figure out how to do this, really hope anyone in here can help me.

You need to script with functions like displayCtrl, ctrlSetPosition, ctrlSetText... These controls are defined in a config.cpp (add-on) or description.ext (simple scripts for mission). There are several types of controls for texts, images, box...
You can display data or not with cutRsc function. Alternate solution is createDisplay/creatDialog but i'm not familiar with that.
Example : MGI HUD tactical glasses. *YES*

PLEASE CONTACT ME ON BI FORUMS FOR ANY SCRIPT / MOD QUESTION. TKS

Couldn't you just use a hint?

Alternatively you could go with a custom UI like Pierre said :-) Depends which method you prefer.
