Higlight keyword effects reversed in Screen Section

Higlight keyword effects reversed in Screen Section

Higlight keyword effects reversed in Screen Section

(OP)

I am using an old version of Micro Focus COBOL (Version 3.2.46) in Windows XP Pro.

I am developing a system for a new customer. The fields in the Screen Section that have the Highlight attribute are displayed in normal brightness. The fields in the Screen Section that do not have the Highlight attribute are displayed as bright. Any data displayed with the built-in functions (CBL_WRITE_SCREEN etc.) are displayed as one would expect them to.

In my older systms, the Screen Section Highlight attribute works properly.

RE: Higlight keyword effects reversed in Screen Section

(OP)
Update: This behavior is only for literals. Data fields work normally. Also, if I press alt-enter to get to a DOS screen, the highlilghting is also normal. When I press alt-enter again to get back to a window, some of the literals work normally, others don't. ponder
