Loop notification

Post by nodochau » Thu Nov 05, 2020 12:59 pm

Hello All,
I have a dialog to query data and there is a loop to let users keeps looking for another print if they like to.
But if the loop happens, there is a notification (number of loops or dialog number I guess) appears. I attached a screen shot so that you know what am I talking about.
How to get rid of it?

We've just had another question regarding this over at support. Does this code replicate the issue?

Code: Select all

object Dialog1: TForm
  Left = 1549
  Top = 742
  HelpContext = 5000
  BorderIcons = [biSystemMenu]
  Caption = 'CustomDialog'
  ClientHeight = 493
  ClientWidth = 1170
  Color = clBtnFace
  Font.Charset = DEFAULT_CHARSET
  Font.Color = clWindowText
  Font.Height = -28
  Font.Name = 'MS Sans Serif'
  Font.Style = []
  OldCreateOrder = True
  ShowHint = True
  OnTaskBar = False
  PixelsPerInch = 240
  TextHeight = 32
  object Label1: TLabel
    Left = 392
    Top = 192
    Width = 86
    Height = 32
    Caption = 'TEST1'

Yes, we have a Custom Scripting Service. Message me or go here

Not sure why the hint is being set to 2 but try changing the hint prior to each Show, or just set ShowHint to False so that the hint is never shown. Open the dialog in the dialog editor, find the ShowHint property and set it to False.
