Updating text color

I need to update text color.

I have set up a style with the updated text color but I have no idea how to change the style in code. WebTextField1.Style.Name = “RedTextStyle” didn’t work.

WebTextField.Style = RedTextFile

That worked! Thanks!

I was afraid I would have to figure out how to use a Thread and/or a Task.

HI,

In addition to this post:

I have a situation where a customer can choose the color by colorpicker and save it as usersettngs.
The next time the user enters the login, the colorvalue is read-out and used for textcolor.
Because of the many combinations of rgb i can’t predefine styles for each color and switch between styles.
So I will change a style property.

Is there a way to do something like this:
(changing property in existing style)

[b]SavedColorStyle.TextColor[/b] = rgb(229,178,0) WebTextField.Style = SavedColorStyle

for this example I used rgb function instead of loading the color from database.

Best regards,
Marc

If you tried, you probably got an error. WebStyles do not work that way. You want to read

But you can set the color of a particular control type such as a TextField.

Add this to App.HTMLHeader :

input[type="text"] { background-color: transparent ; color: rgb(229,178,0)}

All TextFields become transparent and text color is brownish (your specs). Of course, you do not want to apply a Xojo style, it would ruin it. Unless you want a particular TextField another color.

If you want a control where you can change text color on the fly, look into WebSDK, in the Extras folder next to the Xojo executable.

Ok. Thanks . I Have to look into WebSDK.
Because after login, I know what color is needed. The App.HTMLheader is set before. The color must be changeable during the runtime and after loginpage.

Thanks to Michel

The method works also in a Page Source so you can use it on a WebPage basis. BUT the source property of a Page Source can only be set at design time. So the problem remains.

Indeed the best way is to use a WebControlWrapper around an editfield so you can ExecuteJavaScript on it to change the text color.
