Change color of SELTEXT
« on: July 24, 2016, 03:09:46 PM »

Is it possible to change the color of the SELTEXT function in a textbox?

I will enter a tracking number and my code will validate it with a check digit.
If wrong, i would like to just highlight the text in RED and set the focus back to the textbox instead of unnecessary pop-ups etc.

I am pretty sure that this can not be changed. It is based on the user's system's settings for the highlight color. You are probably better off setting the background color of the textbox.

Its anyway easier to do.
