Prompt empty listbox in Uniface 9, new behaviour?
Author: firstname.lastname@example.org (Sven_Hedqvist)
In Uniface 8 if you prompt an empty listbox (i.e. no valrep) you get dotted lines around the first occurence of the listbox. Check picture below.
When we run the same form with the same listbox in Uniface 9 there is no prompting at all if the listbox is empty. A mark of the chosen occurence is only provided if the listbox has a valrep value(s). Se picture below.
The form is the same. The settings are the same for the listboxes as far as I can tell. Somehow though the behaviour is different. You can also see that the Uniface8-version of the listbox is a little more 3D than the Uniface9-version.
Is there any remedy for this problem? Our customers are used to using the tab key to move the prompt around in forms, and when you prompt an empty listbox they will in Unifac 9 think the prompt has disappeared.
