Sunken Appearance

From BR Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Normal Windows behavior is to grey out any data entry fields that are inactive. Consequently, that is how labels appear when they are sunken. This defeats the ability to use a sunken approach to highlight screen headings. For example if you specify SCREEN U 0173 and then specify U as a leading attribute in a PRINT FIELDS specification, the field will be displayed sunken but grey.

You can now override the normal Windows behavior with regard to greying out sunken labels by specifying S as a leading attribute. The S (sunken - formerly shaded) field attribute calls for a white sunken field, irrespective of whether the field is available for keyboard entry.

The name of this example is: SUNKEN.BR

00300 PRINT FIELDS "1,12,C 12,S": "Sunken white"
