%tc - Text Colour

Purpose

To set the colour of subsequent text.

Syntax

winio@('%tc[colour]')
winio@('%tc', rgb_value)
integer rgb_value     (input)

Modifiers

Grave accent (`) - used with an integer argument in order to set the text colour for %eb (Edit Box) (see Colouring the text and background).

Description

colour must be one of black, white, grey, red, green, blue and yellow.

rgb_value is typically obtained by a call to RGB@. Using the value (-1L) resets the colour of subsequent text to its default value.

Notes

The text colour for a given control can be changed dynamically (after the window has been created) by calling the subroutine SET_CONTROL_TEXT_COLOUR@.

Example

winio@('%tc[red]')
winio@('%tc', RGB@(200,200,0))
