Active field borders and scrollbars

Try setting this property programatically like this:

set showfocusborder of field <insert_field_name_here> to false

do this in the preopencard perhaps, worked for me.

Note: This will only have an effect when using the Motif or Macintosh look
and feel, as in Windows focus borders are not drawn around text fields.

Thanks. I tried that, but it still showed up.
