Highlight the current field

Hi,

one of our customers has the following request:

because it's difficult for him to see the cursor he wants the current field to be highlighted (for example with color).

Has anybody solved this issue ?

Is there a way to do this automatically (with Acu or via a windows theme) ?

And will the solution apply to all controls (even check-boxes, radio-buttons and combo-boxes) ?

RE: Highlight the current field

We have a program that does something similar, basically each control calls a common before procedure which does an evaluate on CONTROL-ID, and based on the control does a MODIFY on the label adjacent to the entry field setting a color and the "NOT TRANSPARENT" property. In the common after procedure, we destroy the label and re-display it without setting the color. I don't see why you couldn't do the same with check boxes and radio buttons (although we don't have any on this particular screen).

You can also make the text-field cursor much thicker in the Accessibility options for Windows. That can help make it easier to see.
