    Default "Flashing" Fields

    Good morning - I am using a Desktop Application. Is there some way of making a Character Field "Flash" when there is data in that particular field. I was able to do it in Alpha4V6, in the old DOS version.

    Can anyone help.

    Thanx,

    Howie

    Each form has an Ontimer event. You could attach a script to that event which changes the color or font (or both) each time the onTimer event fires. Check the help file for details on how the ontimer event (in form layouts) works.

    attach code to on timer event of the form.
    in this case, the balance field blinks. one of the color should follow the fields fill color.

    Code:
    if parentform:balance.font.color="red"
       parentform:balance.font.color="white"
    else
       parentform:balance.font.color="red"
    end if
    hope this help
