Read-only Entry Fields used to allow their foreground or background colors to be modified. ACUCOBOL-GT Runtime version 8.1.0 stops this behavior and leaves the read-only field gray.
This change was made to follow Windows standards and was implemented with ECN-3699 released in 8.1.0. Since ACUCOBOL-GT 9.0, this implementation can be turned off so that applications may be customized as usual.
Set the following configuration variable in cblconfi file: ECN-3699 0 The value "0" turns the ECN off, value "1" activates the ECN and entry-fields remain gray.
