I have an editmask, and have included a border. 

I want to edit the color of the border, maybe add some glow when they click into it.

But there is literally no styling you can do from the editMask.

The only way to do this is to take off the border and add a rectangle, then you can change it's color on GetFocus/LoseFocus, but this is faffy, should be able to do it off the editMask. 

Then if you want to add a subtle glow round the box, you need to create the PNG to go round it that appears/dissapears... Then don't even get me started on responsiveness of those images and many other things to suit different size mobile screens.

Any plans to introduce CSS style like programming into PowerBuilder in general? I find styling to take so much longer in PowerBuilder than I do when using HTML5 and CSS3.

PowerBuilder 2019 R2 already supports this:https://www.appeon.com/products/powerbuilder/ui-themes.html

We also plan to add this to PowerServer 2021.

So themes work on mobile, just not PowerServer?

No sorry... I missed that you were using PowerServer on mobile device. We are only supporting UI Themes for desktop deployment.
