Hi,

I am searching through a grid for a given text, and when the text is found I would like to use ATGUISETPROPS to set GPBACKCOLOR in the column of the row where the text is found.  Using ATGUISETPROP for each row is very slow through a VPN connection.

The description of ATGUISETPROPS in the guiman document shows for the VALUES input argument:

corresponding property values separated by attribute marks; multiple rows within a value are separated by value marks and multiple columns within a row are separated by subvalue marks.

Is this at all possible?
How should I interpret this documentation and set the VALUES input argument for it to function?

Thanks,

Karl

I would work from the property information for the control rather than from the more generic information given in the ATGUISETPROPS description. So, for the grid control, GPBACKCOLOR says:

background color (default color is WindowBackground). Individual
column, row or cell colors may be updated by specifying non-zero
values for the
COL and ROW parameters

Therefore, I use ATGUISETPROP like this:

  CALL ATGUISETPROP(guiapp, guifrm, 'MYGRID', GPBACKCOLOR, colno, rowno, CLR3DFACE, guierrors, guistate)

I wrap as much stuff as I can in macros so the actual calls to the GUI are minimised. If you have lots of individual calls to the GUI, things slow down a lot, so bundling them up in a macro is really useful.

HTH,

Brian

Hi Brian,

Thanks for the tip, things worked out fine.  Took 10 minutes to study the documentation and added 3 lines of code to get the desired effect.
