Re: Handle variables in control definition statements

Enlightenment, or a pointer to enlightenment, would be welcome. If you read the 'Handle Variables' section of the LB4 documentation all should be revealed. There are a number of mistakes in your code: The first line should be hw$="#WIN" . I know that is effectively a duplication of the hash charact...

Re: Disabled or Hidden Control still has Focus

I simply thought that if Carl Gundel could get around this small discrepancy, then certainly you could. It's not a discrepancy, it's how Windows works. In the specific case of your program, I know of NO WAY to "get around it", because you are disabling every single control in a dialogue box, someth...

Re: Disabled or Hidden Control still has Focus

So how is this a "Windows" issue? Or do you just enjoy blowing me off? Despite your wish to abuse me, it is a Windows issue: https://devblogs.microsoft.com/oldnewthing/20040804-00/?p=38243 One way of working around the problem is to disable the button using STYLEBITS so that it never acquires focus...

Is it possible to fix this on the next release?
That's determined by Windows, not LBB. I'm not sure how practical, or desirable, it would be for LBB to override Windows' default behavior. What window should have the focus, in your view (there must be one)?

Re: Text Entry Cursor stops blinking

It happens on every Windows 10 PC, so this rules out a problem with my particular machine. So, then, how does one find the 'something' that is wrong with the edit control attributes or style? It's more fundamental than that. The problem doesn't just affect Edit Controls: I've noticed that in BBC BA...

Is there a way to trap a focus change event on a Textbox in LBB?
See here. You will probably want to use a SUB timer handler rather than the branch handler used in the examples.

Re: Text Entry Cursor stops blinking

What API call is used to invoke the text editor control? What DLL, what parameters? The LBB Texteditor is a superclassed, multiline, Windows Edit Control . I don't know which DLL it is in, does it matter? I'm not too sure what you mean by "parameters", but these are the stylebits if that is helpful...

Re: Text Entry Cursor stops blinking

how difficult is it to turn on one of your Windows 10 PCs If a sample of one is sufficient, on my main (and fastest) Windows 10 desktop PC the caret flashes about 6 times and then stops. Clicking with the mouse restarts the blinking for a similar time. The interesting thing, though, is that I had n...

Does your Windows 10 PC behave as I describe, on text entry programs, that is, such as LBB and Notepad?
We currently have (I think) four Windows 10 PCs here so I will need to do some testing to answer that question fully. I don't think the issue is necessarily limited to Windows 10 either.

Re: Text Entry Cursor stops blinking

that's why I turn to my friends in the community. A Google search confirms that this issue has been reported by many people over the course of several years; it seems that Microsoft either can't or won't fix it. It's not even clear whether it's deliberate or a bug. You will probably have to live wi...
