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.
Yes, I believe so too. The info button message seems to accept single line only.
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.
Good call out. I think we are seeing very early versions of controls and Microsoft is going to rapidly improve them. Unfortunately, seeing bugs will be common and we will just have to report them. I’m sure the team is trying their best.
Can we add any link in this button?
Not at the present time. But I do think this is a very good piece of feedback the Modern Controls team needs to hear.
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.
