DD Item Description


Active Member
Hello All,

I have a data dictionary item (TSTA) on a bespoke fix & Inspect form, the
description of this item has been associated with it through Edit ->
Associate -> Description in form design aid.
I am trying to enlarge & change the colour of this description using the
properties/fonts settings but it does not seem to work in run time.
Does anyone know how to do this? All suggestions/Info welcome.

Thanks in advance,



OW, B7332, SP11.1

Are you making the change in both the version and report (object) ?

Hi Steve,
I am not quiet sure what you mean, in OW, application versions are only
different set of values for procerssing options and you can not make any ER
changes to them.

Not sure what version you are working in but in B7321 it also does not appear to work. I wonder if the Interactive Runtime Settings for Font in the jde.ini have some effect or need to be changed.

NT 4.0 SP5, SQL 7.0, One World B7321 SP12.4, Citrix 1.8 (XE soon)
I have been never able to make font changes on forms in APPLs that take effect at run-time neither in B7321 nor B7331, B7332 and XE.
I am also very curious to is anybody out there who was able to accomplish this task with success?
If yes then:
* in wich OW version
* what kind of prerequsite, installation, configuration or .ini setting is required to make it possible
