I'm not sure I understand what you try to say.
I see LabelFont.Color is clWindowText and clWindowText is normal black?
It has escaped your attention that all components have Enabled = False.
That's why the grey text is waiting.
In the object inspector screenshot, I see Enabled = true
I tested this here and this is what I see when AdvComboBox.Enabled = false:
This True is during the draft. During the run is False.
I verified it. I will do it again.
I did experiments. The result is:
- I put in my ComboBox application on another component. OK
- I put the component back. Wrong
- I copied all the components to the experimental project. Except TVirtualImageList. OK
I have checked all Enabled settings. ComboBox is disable. OK
I have nothing to go on.
If a problem persists, to handle this efficient, please isolate this and provide a sample source project + clear steps with which we can reproduce the problem here.
I'll see what I can do about that. I don't know if I can isolate it.
