In the Windows API, ComboBoxes have a strict relationship with Edit boxes, as they got their name (and some of their implementation code) from being a combination of an Edit and a ListBox. So you should hardly be surprised to see a TextHint property also added to the TComboBox class, just like the TEdit class. Again, this feature requires Windows XP or a more modern version of Windows118.
There is a simple combo box with a text hint in the EditFamilyDemo example, as you can see in the last image displayed (a couple of pages back).
