WHITE on WHITE ROW font color in LISTBOX

Jump to solution

Running ACuGt 10.1 under Citrix app on Server 2016

Our application is fired up and the listbox displays ok. Logoff and log back in again and the listbox entries are not visible unless the row is highlighted. At that point the row background becomes BLUE and the TEXT is WHITE and visible.

My feeling is that having selected a row the color is being retained as WHITE instead of black .... when the screen is next displayed and the listbox presented we are looking at WHITE ON WHITE
Have you seen this issue?

Using the cursor we can see that the listbox entries are present and they appear row by row.

We are running citrix for GUI, Listbox text colours change from black to white upon highlighting, When this user logs off and back again CITRIX seems to have remembered the colour as white and hence listbox entries are white on white and cannot be viewed until you highlight the entry , Reboot citrix server resets the problem. Is there anything we can do to reset at login?

Ie at start of AcuCobol session?

Some form of initialization?

We have discovered that this happens even outside of Citrix environment.

Just running AcuGt 10.1 on Windows Server 2016.

Re: WHITE on WHITE ROW font color in LISTBOX....more

I have a follow up question to this ... having applied the config setting:

WIN32_NATIVECTLS TRUE

 

The client is now seeing that the usual grey background to the screen is no longer there .. so you can see all of the individual Label fields with a background slightly darker than the screen background.

 

Is there a way to restore background colour so they match

Does your application use USER-GRAY, USER-WHITE, and USER-COLORS for your display window syntax?

The USER-GRAY, USER-WHITE, and USER-COLORS phrases provide a convenient way of matching your application's normal colors to those chosen by the user.
