Hi all,

I have a Text widget and I set a field hint using the method
Text#setMessage(java.lang.String)

This worked like a charm on Windows XP, but on Windows 7 the hint isn't
displayed.
The Text widget is set as not editable.
Example code:

Text field = new Text(parent, SWT.BORDER | SWT.SINGLE);
field.setEditable(false);
field.setMessage("Filter results");

Kindly, elvisd

Hi,

I think it's expected behavior. If you can't edit the text, then why it should give you a hint?

You are true, but the Text can become editable after some status change,
thus could be ok to display some hint even if not editable.

If is a expected behavior it's ok for me. But for the same SWT version
you have different behavior. In Linux and Windows XP the hint is
displayed, in W7 not.

Is maybe controlled by the OS?

Yes, I think its controlled by the OS.

You could create a bug on the eclipse bugzilla for this. The SWT guys then give us the final answer.

Try to use Text widget with SWT.SEARCH style. At least for me it works...
