Now in PM (Text_SetStyle params: L,R,C and T,B,C)

Postby bowlesj3 » 01 Sep 2010

Value1 = Text_SetStyle(CT_ID[X], 2, 2);

It is too bad this function does not have letter code input where the 2,2 is.

R,L,C and A,B,C. Pretty obvious. No need to explain it. I would not need to keep looking up the help if it was this way.

Dear bowlesj3,

It is a good idea indeed. We will consider its implementation in the future versions.

Sounds good Dave. You could probably make the change fairly easily or have a variation on it such as Text_SetStyle_ex maybe. The only minor negative is I assume the params would need quotes: "R", "A" standing for Right and Above. However it is a lot easier to put the quotes on than have to look up the help for each new implementation of the command. It is also handy to be able to just look at existing code and see what it is doing without having to look it up in the help.

Great idea bowlesj3.
This would definitely save me a lot of look up time.
