Change Editbox colors at runtime

Postby SalvoFa » Tue May 05, 2009 09:00

Hi all,

How can I change the editbox colors at runtime? I mean background, border and text colors...
I'd like to use a function like:

Code: Select all

void CEGUI::ListboxItem::setSelectionColours(const ColourRect & cols)

that I'm currently using to change the listboxitem colors at runtime.

Not all properties have functions defined for them. Have you tried looking up relevant properties and using setProperty() to change their values?

Normally I just look up the properties in the header files, as these are always going to be the most accurate, but there are some online references: ... perty.html
