Grid Control

Because the performance of some controls may be affected in a thin client environment, some control properties may need to be changed. The grid control experiences performance delays when the user clicks and drags the mouse to highlight several cells in the grid. To avoid this, the thin client does not generate the MSG-GOTO-CELL-DRAG event. This prevents you from highlighting a region of the grid during drag operations via the REGION-COLOR property.

The grid control supports a DRAG-COLOR property, which allows you to perform highlighting during a drag operation. You can use this with both the thin client and with the stand-alone runtime.

For more information about the DRAG-COLOR property, refer to the grid control description in the ACUCOBOL-GT User Interface Programming Guide.
