> So how ie 2 days old messages can be changed black and todays messages
remain red? Is that possible to do in same text field?
on addMessage pDateItems, pMessageToAdd
convert the seconds to dateItems
put it into todaysDateItems
put pMessageToAdd & LINEFEED before field "newMessages"
if ((item 1 of pDateItems = item 1 of todaysDateItems) AND \
(item 2 of pDateItems = item 2 of todaysDateItems) AND \
(item 3 of pDateItems = item 3 of todaysDateItems)) then
-- it's today (item 1 = year, item 2 = month, item 3 = date)
select char 1 to (the number of chars in pMessageToAdd) of field
set the foregroundColor of the selectedChunk to "red"
there ya go.. nicely wrapped into a handler for you ;-).. any questions,
feel free to ask (i'm gonna be up for another 10mins then beddy-bye time)
