    Details

      Description

      Run code:


      package javafx_text_prompt;

      import javafx.application.Application;
      import javafx.event.ActionEvent;
      import javafx.event.EventHandler;
      import javafx.scene.Scene;
      import javafx.scene.control.Button;
      import javafx.scene.control.Label;
      import javafx.scene.control.TextField;
      import javafx.scene.layout.HBox;
      import javafx.scene.layout.VBox;
      import javafx.stage.Stage;

      public class JavaFX_Text_Prompt extends Application{

          public static void main(String[] args) {
              launch(args);
          }

          @Override
          public void start(Stage stage) throws Exception {
              
              VBox vb = new VBox();
              
              final TextField testedTextField = new TextField();
              HBox hb = new HBox();
              
              final TextField tf1 = new TextField();
              Button apply = new Button("Set prompt text");
              apply.setOnAction(new EventHandler<ActionEvent>(){
                  @Override
                  public void handle(ActionEvent t) {
                      testedTextField.setPromptText(tf1.getText());
                  }
              });
              
              hb.getChildren().addAll(tf1, apply);
              
              TextField tf2 = new TextField();
              tf2.textProperty().bindBidirectional(testedTextField.promptTextProperty());
              
              vb.getChildren().addAll(new Label("Prompt text issue"), testedTextField, hb, new Label("Current prompt text: "), tf2);
              
              Scene scene = new Scene(vb, 300, 300);
              stage.setScene(scene);
              stage.show();
          }
      }


      Using the second textField (with pressing button) or the third textField, which's text is bidirectionally binded to PromptText of the first textField, I try to set promptText using different manipulation and I couldn't for a long time (see attached movie).

      You can see, that property is set properly, but it is not rendered.

      This issue affects on comboBox(editable), passwordField.
