It does not. Actually it never worked. Nobody has tested it maybe
because TMemo.TextHint was not published.
The native support eg. with LCL-QT5 does work.
What happened so far:
The emulated TEdit.TextHint was not updated always. I fixed it :
Then I simplified the code in r63725 which broke TMemo's behavior :
Then I realized that emulated TMemo.TextHint never worked and disabled
it completely in r63726.
You can test by reverting it. I believe it can be fixed somehow. I
will be happy if you take a look at it.
------ r63726 ------
function TCustomMemo.CanShowEmulatedTextHint: Boolean;
- Result :=
- Assigned(Lines) // CM_EXIT is sent in destroy -> this
function is called in destructor when Lines are already destroyed
- and (Lines.Count = 0)
- and inherited CanShowEmulatedTextHint;
+ // CM_EXIT is sent in destroy -> this is called in destructor when
Lines are already destroyed
+ //Result := Assigned(Lines) and inherited CanShowEmulatedTextHint;
+ // ToDo: Make this work. The line above does not work with GTK2 at least.
+ Result := False;
