We are writing an RCP application and have been using standard Text SWT widgets to allow user input. When the Text widget is blank, we have used setMessage() to provide user feedback. We wanted to start using StyledText for some input fields for a richer experience, but have noticed that setMessage() isn't supported on StyleText widgets. Is there a workaround to do this sort of thing or will it need to be DIY?

Thank you!

You'll need to do this yourself. The existing request for this is

Looks like that bug has been open for quite some time. That's a bummer. Well, we'll have to see what we can do. Thanks!
