General Notes for the Symbian Components

Rich Text Support with the Components

The API of some components provides a property that lets you set the shown component text. For example, the ToolTip component declares the text property. In many cases such property may contain rich text styling markup. However, components have been primarily designed with built-in styling in mind. Component sizing and text eliding are not guaranteed to work properly with rich text, excluding the TextArea and Label components that support rich text by definition. With other components it is recommended that you use plain text only.
