Please find the response for all your queries.1. Extending the Office2007 theme to the borders of the controls like text and combo boxes
Thanks for updating us clearly on your requirement, currently we are not providing any Office2007 theme support for the TextBoxExt and Comboboxes, we have logged a Feature request on your requirement. This feature would be available along with our Vol-4 release.2. I would be happy to use DirecTrac I just needed the right direction which you have provided?
I have alerted both our sales and support Manager on this, I hope they will contact you shortly on this and follow up with you on any clarifications with the Direct-Trac.3. WaterMarkText in a TextBoxExt
On further analysis on your requirement we found that the WaterMark text support for the TextboxExt can be achieved using BannerTextProvider class which provides the ability to show banner text in the textbox.
For setting how to set the BannerTextProvider for our controls, kindly go through the instructions in our online UGhttp://help.syncfusion.com/ug_73/toolswin/BannerText.html
We have implemented a simple sample to demonstrate how to use a BannerText provider to the TextboxExt, kindly download it from the below location.http://files.syncfusion.com/support/Tools.Windows/22.214.171.124/89638/main.htm
You can also refer to our BannerTextprovider sample which is available along with our sample browser. (Editors Package --> Banner Text Provider) which explains both the Focus Mode and Edit Mode for the BannerText provider.
Currently BannerText support is available for the following controls in our Syncfusion windows library.
• TextBoxBarItem (XPMenus),
• ComboBoxBarItem (XPMenus),
• TextBox (ToolStripEx),
• ComboBox (ToolStripEx),
• ComboBoxEx (ToolStripEx)
