Vcl.ExtCtrls TButtonedEdit


Specifies where a control looks for its font information.

Vcl.ExtCtrls.TButtonedEdit.ParentFont inherits from Vcl.Controls.TControl.ParentFont. All content below this line refers to Vcl.Controls.TControl.ParentFont.

Specifies where a control looks for its font information.

To have a control use the same font as its parent control, set ParentFont to true. If ParentFont is false, the control uses its own Font property. Many controls default ParentFont to true so that all the controls in a form or other container present a uniform appearance. When the value of a control's Font property changes, ParentFont becomes false automatically.

When ParentFont is true for a form, the form uses the default font. Currently, the default font is Tahoma 8 pt.

Attention: When designing forms that will run at High DPI, do not turn ParentFont to True for a form.
