APPX 5.2.6 Patch Bug Fixes

Following is a list of bugs that were fixed in Appx patch release 5.2.6, , released *<fill in date here>* . The bug number, from APPX Bug Tracker (SIRID) is in parenthesis.

Experimental Features

3 new experimental features have been added in this patch release.

Large File Support

The internal pointers that Appx uses in the Appx I/O files are only 32 bits in length. This limits file sizes to 2**32-1 bytes, or approximately 4 Gig. A new file type has been added that uses 64 bit pointers, increasing the file size to 2**64-1 bytes, or approximately 16 exabytes (16 billion gigabytes). Because of the internal differences in the file formats, you must export any existing data, then change the FMS type to '9', then import the data with the 'Replace' option. This will initialize the file in the new format and import the data.

Background Color for Scroll Regions

You can now control the background color of scrolling regions. There are two new client properties that control the background color and and two new properties to control the the record selector color.

colorScrollBg = background color for scrolling region.
colorScrollBgActive = background color for active scrolling region
colorScrollSelectActive = record selector outline on active record
colorScrollSelectOther = record selector outline on non-active record

Background Color for focused fields

You can now set a background color for the field that has the focus. This makes it easier for the user to see which field has the focus. The client property is colorFocusedFieldBg.

Note: The client accepts colors in the usual #rrggbb notation, and also accepts the following color names: black, blue, cyan, darkGray, gray, green, lightGray, magenta, orange, pink, red, white and yellow. The names are case sensitive and if incorrect the client will default to orange.
