WinFBE - Frame Control
« on: October 20, 2018, 03:18:53 PM »

Hi Paul, a Frame control on a test form. Same results with or without a With. Tried 1.7.9 and 1.8.1 using 64 and 32 bit versions.


Code: [Select]

   
    With frmMain           
        '' code...
        '' Set BackColour of controls to match frmMain
        Dim As Long c = .BackColor
        .fraOne.BackColor = c ' <-- works but not a popup choice
       
        .fraOne.ForeColor = colors.BlueViolet ' <-- no effect
        .fraOne.Show                          ' <-- the only item in the popup
        .fraOne.Font = New wfxFont( "Courier New", 10, FontStyles.Normal, FontCharset.Ansi ) ' <-- works but not a popup choice
        .fraOne.Text = " This is modified text "                                             ' <-- works but not a popup choice


    End With





I couldn't find the earlier post describing the Frame controls limitations so this post may be mute.


Off Topic, .popup works only about 50% of the time. Restarting WinFBE will usually get it going again but stops after some other editing. And t[/size][size=78%]he last choice will repeat if no more choices are available. As in frmMain.fraOne.Show.Show.Show.Show.Show.Show.[/size]

The only valid properties should be the ones that are displayed in the PropertyList within WinFBE. Let's just say that the whole popup lists thing and repeating choices is a "work in progress" :D :D :D

Understood. Currently, Show is the only choice for the Frame control.
