B4A Library [B4X] [XUI] [B4XLib] SD TextView

I needed to develop a modern editText (or TextField), but different from the B4XFloatTextField, different in terms of graphics and style. So I created the SD_TextView
(see also xComboBox)

NOTE: You can use this library for personal and commercial use. Include it in your projects.. Attention, even if it is a B4XLib library, it is not allowed to decompress it, modify it, change its name or redistribute it without the permission of the author

I didn't quite understand what is not working well and which class you are writing about

This is the expected behavior. By Hint we mean the icon (if you use FontAwesone) or the text (if you use a normal font) enclosed in the drop.
While if you want the traditional hint you have to access the native property.
Hi

I downloaded this library last week. Nice work, these text fields look really nice. I have noticed that the EnterPressed event does not fire if the Password check box is enabled, this is for the sd_icontextview in B4J on Windows 10. I have not checked the other text fields.

Thanks
John

I have the latest version of B4J. If you take your B4J sample that was included in your post and add the ENTERPRESSED event to SD_ICONTEXTVIEW2, then in your code add a line in the generated event to log something. Run the program, enter something into that field, and press enter. The log will show whatever you keyed into the log statement. Now change SD_ICONTEXTVIEW2 by making it a password field and run that. The log does not show anything as the event is not fired.

Use the NativeObject method to access the native properties of the view and you can select ForceDone to True

B4X:
#IF B4A
SD_IconTextView1.NativeObject.SingleLine=False
#ELSE IF B4i
' do not possible - TextField is only sigle line
#ELSE IF B4J
' do not possible - TextField is only sigle line
#END IF
