It turns out that it's controlled by a registry setting: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\CaretTimeout.
It would of course be quite easy to write a LB/LBB program to make the necessary change to the Registry, to avoid having to do it manually.

Re: Text Entry Cursor stops blinking

I eventually found the solution here . It turns out that it's controlled by a registry setting: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\CaretTimeout . By default this is set to 5000 (0x1388), which means the caret stops blinking after 5 seconds. If you want it to continue blinking indefinitely you c...

Re: Left Border of Editor Window

For me this does not occur with any editor other than the LBB IDE. It's evidently a peculiar feature of the Rich Edit control. It is mentioned at MSDN here : " the selection bar is an unmarked area to the left of each paragraph that when clicked, selects the line " (so it's not the bevel). Apparent...

Re: Left Border of Editor Window

The standard Text Editor and Text Box controls don't have a 'bevel' by default. Isn't the presence of a 'bevel' principally a function of the window style, not what kind of control the window contains: nomainwin WindowHeight = 470 statictext #w.st1, "No Stylebits", 50, 20, 200, 32 stylebits #w.st2,...

Re: Left Border of Editor Window

if you move the mouse pointer very slowly toward the left edge of the edit window, when it is over the narrow 'bevel' it changes to a right-pointing arrow. If you click the mouse in this position, it selects the whole line. I've never encountered that behavior and it's certainly nothing that I have...

Re: Left Border of Editor Window

Richard, is it possible to make the left border of the editor window a bit wider, so the right-leaning cursor is easier to position for selecting all of a line with a single click? I'm afraid I have no idea what "the right-leaning cursor" is, nor how to select all of a line with a single click. The...

Re: LBB much slower than LB in this pgm

Why does you I7 laptop perform correctly ,,, is it windows or a driver that is doing the capping? I believe the capping is the driver's reaction to detecting a fake chip. I assume I don't see any capping since my adapter has a genuine Prolific device. I can't think of any other reason why speed cap...

Re: LBB much slower than LB in this pgm

19200 baud still get 220088 ms 220+ seconds this makes little since to me...... On the contrary it makes perfect sense if you assume my theory is correct: that the speed is being deliberately capped to 1000 characters per second. If that's true all rates up to and including 9600 baud will run at th...

I think AMD / windows drivers may be issue....
Probably, but I still wonder why a driver would impose a speed cap of 1000 characters-per-second, a suspiciously 'round' number. It seems to be deliberate rather than an 'accident'.
