Using Windows 10 Pro, PB 2017R2 1756.

I have a datawindow that contains a column with the richtext edit-style.
I use the new richtext-control that came with PB 2017

After the retrieve the itemstatus of the column is 'notmodified'.

Now I press control + d to change the textcolor via the font-dialog.

After closing the font-dialog I can see the changed color (and also gettext() returns the changed rtf), but the status remains 'notmodified' when i leave the column or even if i do an explicit accepttext().

When I then do an update() of the datawindow of course there are no changes to the database.

If I change just one character in the text or use the richtext toolbar to style the text it works.

So it seems that PB does not recognize a change that is made via the font-dialog and the itemstatus does not change in that case! In PB 12.1 that worked.

Best Regards, Martin

BTW, are there news about the 'slow opening of the datawindow containg richtext columns'-issue?

Thank you, Armeen, for your answer.

This article talks about Terminal or remote scenarios.

My Installation is much easier, it's the local installation (or classic client/server installation). PB-App runs on the local machine.

But there also is the problem of slow opening of the Window (or better opening / creating the datawindow control inside) if there is a datawindow containing columns that have the richtext edit-style.

Note, that I'm not talking about the richtext CONTROL.

Regards, Martin
