Textbox group property clauses

Clauses are available within the textbox group declaration to define certain properties for textboxes appearing within the group. The remaining clauses consist of the textbox definitions themselves, which contain clauses of their own. Most clauses appear at textbox level, rather than at group level, because the properties they define are applicable to individual boxes rather than to the group as a whole.

Textbox group clauses, which appear within the group declaration, define default values for the group. The clauses are listed, each on a separate line, within the braces of the textbox group definition. Any of these clauses may be redefined for individual textboxes in the group, overriding the group default.

The available textbox group clauses are:

label_bgc = rgb_value
label_fgc = rgb_value
Label background colour.
Label foreground colour.

See Textbox label. Default: the parent window’s label colour values.

data_bgc = rgb_value
data_fgc = rgb_value
Data background colour.
Data foreground colour.

See Textbox data. Default: the parent window’s data colour values.

palette = integer

Palette number. Default: the window palette.

style = flags

Style flags. Default: no style flags set.

options = flags
