on a Mac, when a textfield is blank, the cueText becomes visible, and if I set textField1.setfocus, that object gets the focus retaining the cueText visible.
On Windows (X), I see that the cueText becomes visible only if a blank textField does not have the focus.
And setting textField1.setfocus, not only the cueText becomes invisible, but the textField itself freezes for a few seconds, that is: the beam stops blinking for a few seconds (and from another project it seems that code following "textField1.setfocus" stops its execution till I click in the textField).
BTW. I noticed this behavior years ago. But since I'm not a Windows man, I'd like to know if all this is the expected behavior.
If not, is there a way to have the cueText appear when the textField is blank? And to avoid what I called the "freezing" at setfocus?
New project created and built on Mac (Mojave); built.exe tested on a Windows X PC.
