Some doubts using XUI

Hello experts!!

Well, I have bee working in the creation of a custom XUI window, I'm
inserting a group of radiobuttons, however, I'm having a problem when I
try to change the background colors 😞 I don't want the background in
gray, but when I change the background color for the label's buttons,
I'm still having the background of the small circle button in gray. Does
anybody know if I have a chance to change it? Also I would like to know
if anybody knows where I can Find more information in order to make my
XUI implementation.

As always all your help and suggestion are more than welcome!

Best Regards.

Hi Paulette,

customizing_guide.pdf in Editor's install tree (docs subfolder, I believe),
should have the available information on XUI.

I do not try and change colors in XUI (or use graphics), so I don't have
direct experience with this, but I do know that your authors' Windows
settings interact with XUI display since ultimately they are translated
into Windows windows. Some stuff you can't control. Well, not without
resorting to Windows programming ... which, if required, probably means you
shouldn't be using XUI. Or at least that has been my experience. Even what
you can control may not play well with your authors' personal desktop
themes or custom settings. Starting down that path may open up a new order
of compatibility testing not worth the payoff.

One limit I am afraid will eventually bite me is screen size. Our
requirements have lead to increasingly wide and tall dialogs. At present,
they slip off the bottom of my laptop screen ... the lowest controls are
*just* manipulable. Barely. Hopefully, I've got the fewest vertical pixels
available ... but as I said ... I worry about the next requirement pushing
me all the way off screen.
