Bonus TIPS for Successful Posting

Try a Search First
It is highly recommended that a Search be done on your topic before posting, as many questions have been answered in prior posts. As with any search engine, the shorter the search term, the more "hits" will be returned, but the more specific the search term is, the greater the relevance of those "hits". Searching for "table" might well return every message on the board while "tablesum" would greatly restrict the number of messages returned.

When you do post
First, make sure you are posting your question in the correct forum. For example, if you post an issue regarding Desktop applications on the Mobile & Browser Applications board , not only will your question not be seen by the appropriate audience, it may also be removed or relocated.

The more detail you provide about your problem or question, the more likely someone is to understand your request and be able to help. A sample database with a minimum of records (and its support files, zipped together) will make it much easier to diagnose issues with your application. Screen shots of error messages are especially helpful.

When explaining how to reproduce your problem, please be as detailed as possible. Describe every step, click-by-click and keypress-by-keypress. Otherwise when others try to duplicate your problem, they may do something slightly different and end up with different results.

A note about attachments
You may only attach one file to each message. Attachment file size is limited to 2MB. If you need to include several files, you may do so by zipping them into a single archive.

If you forgot to attach your files to your post, please do NOT create a new thread. Instead, reply to your original message and attach the file there.

When attaching screen shots, it is best to attach an image file (.BMP, .JPG, .GIF, .PNG, etc.) or a zip file of several images, as opposed to a Word document containing the screen shots. Because Word documents are prone to viruses, many message board users will not open your Word file, therefore limiting their ability to help you.

Similarly, if you are uploading a zipped archive, you should simply create a .ZIP file and not a self-extracting .EXE as many users will not run your EXE file.

      Re: Xdialog button text colour

      I use a variable for the text so current code is:-
      button1_label = "This line of text in black(lf)This line of text in blue"
      <*150,4=button1_label!button1>
      This will not seem to accept the additional {code}
      Perhaps you know how.

        I am using the variables for the button label as these are actually dynamic

          Does anyone know how to use text variables for the label with colour rather than just the text itself.
          Thanks

            Try this sample

            Code:

            open_text = "Open:$a5_open"

            dim vFlyFmt as c =""

            dim vBttnTxt as c =""

              Re: Xdialog button text colour

              Thanks, but I am trying to get 2 different colours for the text on a button i.e.
              This line of text in black
              This line of text in blue
              This works
              <*150,5{F=Arial,16}{C=Black}This line of text in black{F=arial,10}{LF}{C=Blue}This line of text in blue!button1>
              but rather than fixed text I would like to use variables containing the text, as replacing the fixed text with the variables fails.

                    Re: Xdialog button text colour

                    Still working on this and now trying to change colour of text rather than button label.
                    Here is the example code:-
                    titlestring = "Testing Text Colours"
                    headingstring = "this heading word wraps at 30 characters"
                    text1 = "This text is black - "
                    text2 = "This text is blue, but this is failing to wrap"
                    headingstring3A = "{B=#234+234+255}{C=Black}" + text1 + "{C=Blue}" + text2


                    varC_result = ui_dlg_box(titlestring,<<%dlg%
                    {Background=#234+234+255}
                    {Region}
                    {text=25,14:headingstring};
                    {text=%O={@@}%30,8:headingstring3A};
                    {lf};
                    {font=Arial,18}
                    {Endregion};
                    %dlg%)
                    Unfortunately I cannot get the text to wrap as it normally would.
                    Any help?
                    Thanks

                      Terry,

                      Insert "{LF}" where you need to Break the line. see below similar threads too.

                          - No wrap feature.

                            If the string in blue is to be dynamic and variable in length then you might need a little string manipulation first that will test the length of the string and the number of words in it. Then you can divide up the string into multiple variables, each no more than 30 chars long and string those vars together to get the text into multiple lines in your formatted text string and display that in the dialog using some event code. Adding a custom function would be good for this...
