Conceptually I have no issue with the use of a placeholder Node property
being used instead of an emptyText String property - I like the
consistency across the controls. The only (slight) concern is the
increased complexity for the common use case: you go from
comboBox.setEmptyText("empty!!") to comboBox.setPlaceholder(new
I'll leave it up for discussion, but as of now the status quo is emptyText.
