Info

This plug-in will let you subclass any window in the NSIS process (Not thread safe ATM)

Examples

The following example mimics the behavior of EM_SETCUEBANNER, but can be used on older windows versions, multi-line textboxes and Windows XP with asian language support without problems.

The code essentially displays an Edit (text) field with custom colors (grey on white) and the string "Password". When the user sets focus to this field (via mouse or keyboard), and its content is "Password", its content is cleared and the control colors set to another set of custom colors (black on white). When the user removes focus from this field (via mouse or keyboard), and its content is empty, the 'Password' text and grey on white colors are restored. If the field is not empty, the string the user has entered remains.
