PB11.5 DataWindow, RichText column - where's the color option?

Hi there

PB11.5 saw the inclusion of something I have been waiting for since PB4 - 
RichText columns in DWs!!!

Just got round to trying this out. When I click on the RichText column I get 
the pop up toolbar allowing me to change font, bold, bullet etc but there is 
no colour options.

So my question - where's the option to change colours?


Thanks
Brian

Double click in a blank area of the tool bar and the dialog with color
selection will appear.

Should it not print the same way it looks on the screen? I would love you 
use this feature heavily but can't because it
does not print in richtext. I can save it and bring it back the way I want 
it but that datawindow does not print the same way. My richtext column is 
hook as nested report object.

Thanks guys. Not sure about that particular feature - but it works so fair 
enough. I guess I can write my own popup if I really want.

Actually I've discovered another issue - more of a show stopper. You can't 
have an Autosize Height Richtext column - it crashes PB.

If you have a RichText column, turn on Autosize Height on detail band then 
try and check the Autosize Height on the RichText column the PB IDE crashes

 I've tested this with a really simple 2 column DW (against Oracle in this 
case)

Does anyone know if this is a bug?

Thanks
Brian

Can't recreate this crash in build 3127...   (Using SA11, not Oracle though)

Thanks for the reply Paul.  I've since discovered its a known issue that 
requires .Net 3.5 framework (see my seperate thread on this).

I'm off to try that - I am assuming you have .Net 3.5 installed and that's 
why its working for you?

Do you have a reference for that known issue?  I'm not sure why that feature 
would depend on the version of the .Net SDK, since RTE column edit style 
isn't a .Net-only feature.

 From the PB11.5 release notes:

Setting AutoSizeHeight on RichText column can cause crash
At design time, if you select AutoSizeHeight for a DataWindow band and 
then select it for a RichText column, PowerBuilder might crash. This 
occurs when you only have .NET Framework 2.0 on your computer. If you 
install .NET Framework 3.5, the crash does not occur. [CR 542149]

 From the latest EBF bug list fixes:

16640   545634   A datawindow that has a rich text column will
                     cause the Powerbuilder ide to crash when setting
                     the autosize height of the column and the detail
                     band to true.  According to the PB 11.5 release
                     notes this is a known issue and installing the
                     .NET 3.5 Framework would solve the problem.
