Property Value

Type Description

A AppearanceObject object that contains corresponding style settings.


When a Customization Form is empty, it displays a hint text detailing the purpose of the Customization Form. The hint text is stored in the TreeListLocalizer class, and can be accessed and localized by overriding the TreeListLocalizer.GetLocalizedString method. Use the TreeListStringId.CustomizationFormColumnHint constant to identify the hint text via the TreeListLocalizer.GetLocalizedString method. See Localizing WinForms Controls via Localizer Objects to learn more.

The CustomizationFormHint property allows the appearance (font settings, color and alignment) of the hint text to be customized.
