Delphi – How to change the font of a hint window
July 14, 2013 11:51 AM
Working on a little project, I needed to increase the font size of the font of hint windows (you know; those yellow boxes with hints).
This is how I managed to get it to work:
TMyHintWindow = class(THintWindow)
constructor Create(AOwner: TComponent); override;
constructor TMyHintWindow.Create(AOwner: TComponent);
with Canvas.Font do
Name := 'Arial';
Size := Size + 3;
procedure TFrom1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
HintWindowClass := TMyHintWindow;
Application.ShowHint := False;
Application.ShowHint := True;

Is there anywhere to alter or customize this portion below? Im not familiar enough with this stuff, but I have someone from xxxxx, working on it.
Name := 'Arial'; Size := Size + 3;

I'm not sure what you mean with "altering" that portion ...
