Vcl.ExtCtrls TEditButton


Contains the text string that can appear when the user moves the mouse over the edit button.

Use the Hint property to provide a string of help text for a TEditButton.

A Help Hint is a box containing help text that appears for an edit button when the user moves the mouse pointer over the button and pauses momentarily. To set up Help Hints:

  • Specify the Hint property of each edit button of a TButtonedEdit for which a Help Hint should appear.
  • Set the ShowHint property of the parent TButtonedEdit to true.
  • See information in the TControl Hint property for how to use the OnHint event handler or the ParentShowHint property and the ShowHint property of the form to display hints.
  • If the Hint property contains only one value, the entire string is used as a Help Hint.

Note: If the application's ShowHint property is false, the Help Hint does not appear.
