Is it possible to display the value of a string or integer variable in an ability's tooltips?

For example: you have a spell that does damage equal to the hero's current hit points. Could you set the hit point value to a variable and then display that value in the ability's tooltip?

I don't think it's possible. You can point an object variable in tooltips, but I doubt you can point a "dynamic" (or else) variable like the current hp of an unit.
Alternatively, you could maybe display the damage done over the hero or his target when he casts the spell, using floating text.
