Customize DisplayText of the Textbox

Welcome to Wisej Support.
Questions, suggestions and plain old bugs - are all welcome here!


I love the Tools property of the Wisej textbox controls. With it, I can remove a lot of customization code when moving VWG-> Wisej. Thank guys.

Some more features I wish to see in the Wisej textbox control:

+ The ability to display a customized content depend on the focus state. Please see the picture attached. At the moment, I work around by handling the GotFocus/LostFocus event.

+ Support a better tooltip instead of a default one.

Thank you for the great job.

Hi Tung,

thanks for your kind words, that’s much appreciated!

Depending on what you’re after, the Watermark property of Textbox and ComboBox might be what you are looking for. I have used this in similar scenarios as those that you describe. Other than that, you could create your own class that derives from Textbox/ComboBox to handle the Get/Lost Focus events and adds a property for alternative text to show while focused. That way you don’t have to duplicate the code but keep it at one place.

Best wishes
