I just discovered a way to cool trick with blendlevels and (list)fields.
You can have multicolored hilitedLines for a field. No problem.
No special coding neccesary, you just set the hilitedLines of 2 flds
a top of each other. That's all.
Create 2 flds same size on top of each other. Set the opaque of the top
one to false
Put as many empty lines in the bottom one as you have lines of text in
the top one.
Now set the hiliteColor of the 2 flds to something different, let's say
bright blue and the other is quite red. Next set the blendlevel of the
fld to somewhere between 30 and 70% also play with the inks.
(a nice one is for instance bothl blendlevels 0 and ink for the bottom
layer to bitwise scrCopy
and the ink for the top one to arithmic blend)
Anyway now set the hilitedLines of the base fld, the one with the empty
to lets say 1, 2 and of the top fld to 2,3. Now we have 3 differently
Sync the 2 flds up and you can have magic, Heck you can do it with 3
Alternating colored lines, it's easy. Except for syncing the scroll of
the 2 fld's,
no extra code necessary. Neat, ... ... very neat.
Happy coding you guys and gals
