RAD Studio VCL Reference
TCheckBox.ParentShowHint Property

Determines where a control looks to find out if its Help Hint should be shown.

property ParentShowHint: Boolean;
__property Boolean ParentShowHint;

Use ParentShowHint to ensure that all the controls on a form either uniformly show their Help Hints or uniformly do not show them.  

If ParentShowHint is true, the control uses the ShowHint property value of its parent. If ParentShowHint is false, the control uses the value of its own ShowHint property. 

To provide Help Hints for only selected controls on a form, set the ShowHint property for those controls that should have Help Hints to true, and ParentShowHint becomes false automatically.

Note: Enable or disable all Help Hints for the entire application using the ShowHint property of the application object.
