Mac Lazarus 64 bit, hints dont show in dialogs inside of TPanel
« on: September 07, 2019, 05:18:53 am »
Mac Lazarus 2.0.4. 64 bit (latest version, not the trunk).
I'm having trouble getting yellow text hints to show in dialogs, when in controls (e.g. TButton) that are within a TPanel. The TButton hints work fine directly on the TForm, and inside a TGroupBox.

I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong. For example, for the TButton I set ShowHint to true and set the Hint:= 'Some Text';   
- Am I supposed to also set something like ParentShowHint in the TButton, or am I supposed to set something in the TPanel?

These worked in 32 bit Carbon LCL as I recall.

I have the same issue when TPanel is used (no matter dialogs or the main form, Lazarus 2.1.0). Hints were not shown for toolbar, pagecontrol, something else until I removed TPanel.

There was no problem on a Windows platform, and there was also a problem for pagecontrol for Linux GTK2 interface for me. Onshowhint method was also not working. Actually I found TPanel was excess in my app.
