WinChar Colors section
The WinChar Colors section of the progress.ini file contains options that specify the colors that make up the color table for use with character clients.
Each entry in the WinChar Colors section performs two semantic functions: it defines a color, and it maps that color to an entry in the color table by specifying an integer from 0 to 255. An application specifies this integer when making a color assignment to a widget.
Specify a color entry using the following syntax:
| colorn = {[ BLINK- ][ BRIGHT- ]fgnd-color|bgndcolor}
keyword | colorn
You can also specify color0, color1, and color2 using the NORMAL, INPUT, and MESSAGES keywords, respectively. The keyword overrides the colorn specification. That is, if you specify both colorn and its corresponding keyword, OpenEdge displays the colors you specified with the keyword.
The color to use for the screen foreground.
The color to use for the screen background.
For information about color definitions for the WinChar Colors section, see the Color Phrase reference entry in OpenEdge Development: ABL Reference..
