I did some testing with this control and while it accepts multiple lines, either with manual line breaks or Char(10), it doesn’t display them. I believe there is a Trim function hardcoded into the final result.

I really like this new control, but it seems to have broken in the latest 2 releases of the editor. In 3.23041.11 the “pop-up” has a white background as in your article, but in 3.23042.12 and 3.23034.8 the “pop-up” has no background color and a thin black outline. There’s no styling to be done, as far as I can tell, and for some reason the editor won’t let me switch to an earlier version.

I added some in to an app, they were great. They had a white background so people could see them easily, but this has changed since without any change to the apps colour scheme, theme, etc. The background behind the text is now transparent so it’s very hard to read – anyone else saw this?

The fill for the message label for me is transparent, I cannot change the fill of the label.

Mine is also transparent, did you manage to change this?

The issue has been resolved from my end seemly by Microsoft because we did not change anything.

Has anyone else been having issues with this control? Used to work really well, but the content is now running out of view for all my apps.

Yes, recently I was updating one of my information Buttons and now it is cutting off text only showing 50% of the box. 🙄

Es wäre cool, wenn man verschiedene Icons alternativ verwenden könnte, oder auch das Icon unsichtbar machen könnte
