BUI logoCSS

The visual appearance of BUI controls is defined using CSS (cascading style sheets) rules. Easily change the default colors, border, and other settings by customizing these rules, all without changing any application code. See CSS API for a high-level overview of BUI CSS.

The BBjCEdit is implemented as a <textarea> element. It defines the following styles:

.BBjCEdit

.BBjCEdit.bbj-bordered

.BBjCEdit.bbj-disabled

.BBjCEdit.bbj-focused

.BBjCEdit.bbj-readonly

To modify the optional border:

.BBjCEdit.bbj-bordered

{

  border: 1px solid #7f9db9;  

}

By default, the BUI BBjCEdit is not user-resizable because resizing it can conflict with other controls on the page. That option can be added like this:

.BBjCEdit

{

  resize: both;  

}

Remarks

In BBj 10 and higher, the BBjCEdit honors the documented $0004$ flag ("Draws a border around the control"). This flag was previously ignored in BBj, so some applications didn't set it, even if they wanted borders. Set the CEDIT_BORDER !COMPAT setting to TRUE to show borders around all CEDIT controls, regardless of the state of the $0004$ flag.

Example

rem 'Add a custom edit box to a window

rem 'Obtain the instance of the BBjAPI object
let myAPI! = BBjAPI()

rem 'Open the SysGui device
SYSGUI = UNT
OPEN (SYSGUI) "X0"

rem 'Obtain the instance of the BBjSysGui object
let mySysGui! = myAPI!.getSysGui()

rem 'Set addWindow param values
X = 10
Y = 10
WIDTH = 200
HEIGHT = 200
TITLE$ = "BBj Window"

rem 'Set the current context
mySysGui!.setContext(0)

rem 'Create a window
myWindow! = mySysGui!.addWindow(X,Y,WIDTH,HEIGHT,TITLE$)

rem 'Add a button on the window
myCEdit! = myWindow!.addCEdit(101,50,100,90,30,"",$0008$)

rem 'Register the CALLBACK routines
CALLBACK(ON_EDIT_MODIFY,CEDIT_MODIFIED,mySysGui!.getContext(),myCEdit!.getID())
