[archive] Acucobol 8.01.02 and color

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 23 April 2010]

My color option doesn't seem to work in version 8.01.02 with read-only fields?

Anybody any idea?

As of version 8.1 read-only entry fields were changed to conform to standard Windows behavior in that the background color is always gray regardless of the background color setting.

Try setting the configuration variable ECN_3699 to 0 which should allow you to change the behavior back to pre-8.1 behavior.

Thanks, that seems to work, as long as it isn't a 64-bit os.:)

Is it not working for you on 64-bit Windows?

I tested on our 64-bit 2008 server using the 64-bit and 32-bit 8.1.2.1 runtimes with the config setting and it changed the background color on the read-only entry field to the BCKGRND-BLUE specification I had made (see attached test program compiled in debug).
