Long and short hints.

What is a long/short hint ?

When you set the hint property of a component, you can create it in

two parts :

The short part|The part that can be longer



If you set the ShowHint property to TRUE, your application will show

a tooltip with the short (first) part of the hint only and you can

catch the hint in the TApplication.OnHint or TApplication.OnShowHint

and using GetLongHint show a longer message in the Statusbar for

instance.
