It appears this issue has re-surfaced or perhaps just has'nt yet been patched.

While the gradient fill displays correctly in design mode, it gets dropped in run mode. (Memo Field Only).

Would someone confirm this, just to make sure its not just me.

Thanks, John

I think we marked this up as a limitation - the live editor doesn't support anything other than a solid color background - we rely on the fact that static RTF renders directly to a form (much like an RTF in a report renders to a page when a report is being printed).

If we changed the live RTF editor to use the same logic that the 'printed' rtf and static rtf on form uses, we would see more sluggish response in the RTF editor, which is optimize to do incremental repaints.

Perhaps a happy medium could be met that uses the optimizations that are in place when the background desired is solid, and fall back on a brute force 'just render the whole screen' when gradients are desired.

Oh well! Any progress on the browse "Filter / Order" issue.

Thanks, John
