Thanks, Paul! Occurrences Highlighting is a nice feature.
When using a dark or black background, a fairly bright colour is required to both be noticeable in other occurrences and also to be able to see the text colour of the highlighted word. I tried most colours in the colour picker (except Custom) and settled on Signal Green.
A couple of anomalies: Double apostrophes (double single quotes, '') is considered a word and Brace Highlighting is no longer functioning.

Hi Paul, Is there a Button TextForeColorHot property? The Autocomplete lists 2 TextForeColor properties for a button control. I'm currently using MouseEnter/MouseLeave Events to change the TextForeColor property.

That's odd, brace highlighting seems to be working okay for me here. Both 32 and 64 bit WinFBE's. I am thinking of adding a slider for degree of alpha blending for the brace colors. That should make it easier to customize the color better.

I remember us discussing this over on this thread: https://www.planetsquires.com/protect/forum/index.php?topic=4432.0
There currently is no TextForeColorHot. Here are the text color properties:

      Declare Property TextForeColor() As COLORREF
      Declare Property TextForeColor( ByVal nValue As COLORREF)
      Declare Property TextBackColor() As COLORREF
      Declare Property TextBackColor( ByVal nValue As COLORREF)
      Declare Property TextForeColorDown() As COLORREF
      Declare Property TextForeColorDown( ByVal nValue As COLORREF)
      Declare Property TextBackColorDown() As COLORREF
      Declare Property TextBackColorDown( ByVal nValue As COLORREF)

I have BackColorHot as well, I thought adding ForeColorHot would make a nice pair! :0)

Hello Paul
The code completion does not work for me since the update to version 2.1.7. Can you take a look at it?
With version 2.1.6 I had no problems.

Thanks Joerg, does it not work in 32 bit and 64 bit? Does it not work in Visual Designer related projects and non- VD projects? Standalone code outside of a project? Do you Tabs, or Tabs to Spaces? I made a lot of changes to the code and hopefully did not break something very important.

Hello Paul

I don't know what's going on now.

It didn't work for me over Whitsun.

Today I'm in the office and the code completion wanted nothing to do with me again....
Now I started the 32bit version of WinFBE and the code completion worked.

Then I started the 64bit variant of WinFBE and ..... the code completion worked this time too.
No matter why. It works at the moment. If the behavior occurs again, I can give you detailed information.

Sometimes I get the feeling that it is only up to me...  ;D
I have worked with the 64bit version.
A new small project with Visual Designer.
So far it was only "standalone" code within the project.
I had not used Tabs, or Tabs to Spaces until now.

But as I mentioned before, this feature does not appear since the start of the 32bit variant.

But as mentioned I can't explain it.

Hi Paul, just a note but the compiler setup help files prefilled with your file locations.

Hi Paul, the wfxDateTimePicker font is fixed at runtime but editable at design time.

Hi Paul. Thanks for letting me join the forum.

You probably thought you squashed this several releases back, but actually it just ran into a darker corner. If you define a TYPE inside an event routine, the Designer will duplicate the event function at the bottom of the page. There's an obvious workaround -- don't define TYPEs in event routines -- but it might be a symptom of something deeper. I think I've attached a screenshot.

Thanks Phil - I'll definitely look into this one and fix it up.

Hi Paul, just another little niggle, but others may not see it as such, but I do not like the autocomplete of adding the closing ')' for functions. More often than not I've got to delete it.
