Hi Miguel,

OK, we'll record it as a new requirement/enhancement request.
And we will submit this ticket to our development to further analyze the issue.
It will take some time to reach a conclusion. We will keep you updated!

Regards,
Mark Lee

We can have a discussion whether it's a bug or not, but I'd rather ask you to turn this into a "feature / enhancement" request. If that's never going to happen, then just close it.

new test result

Hi Miguel,

Thanks for providing the test case and video.
I can reproduce it on our side. But this is a normal PB behavior as well.

Only 3-d look checkbox will show the background color behind the tick box.
The 2-d look checkbox doesn't show the background color behind the tick box.

You can increase the size of the column mycheck and you will see clearly that the background color is not missing (see attached video).
 
So this issue is not a PB bug. Can we close the ticket now?

Regards,
Mark Lee

2d vs 3d look.mp4 (95KB)

Hi Mark,
The background color of the "text" of a 3d checkbox does change, but ... the color within the check doesn't.
See attached small video.

Hi Miguel,

Thanks for your feedback.
Sorry, I think my previous understanding was wrong.
But according to the description you provided "When setting a checkbox to "3d look" on a datawindow, the background color doesn't work.", even if I use the case of bug 6721, I cannot reproduce your problem.
Please provide us with a reproduce case (including the PBT/PBL) to reproduce and analyze this problem. Thanks!

Regards,
Mark Lee

Hi Mark,
I know about the character set of the Russian language. I'm not worried about that. 
What I would like is to be able to set the background color when 3d-look is enabled. The workaround of NOT using 3d look is not a solution for the 3d background color problem. 
It's like saying "Can you fix this?" and getting the answer "Just don't use it".

regards

Hi Miguel,

Thanks for reporting this problem.
Currently, this problem only occurs when the Windows setting "Current language for non-Unicode programs" = Russian. If your customers are all set to English, there will be no such problem.
 
In addition, this unknown symbol problem must have been caused by the lack of a corresponding character set in Windows in the Russian language. So it is not as easy to repair as we thought.
Therefore we recommend that you use the workaround of either disabling the "Scale" option on the checkbox object or enabling both "Scale" and "3-D look" options on the checkbox object.

Regards,
Mark Lee

*Phenomenon:
When setting a checkbox to "3d look" on a datawindow, the background color doesn't work.
This is probably an old bug, but it would be really nice if it could be fixed, especially when regarding you guys decide to not do a fix for Bug 6721.
regards
