Different Graphics Drivers
Posted 14 September 2006 - 10:39 AM
We are in the process of upgrading one of our clients from v4.6 to v5.5.
We've enhanced some of the screen displays with various colours and the 'piv' is set to use ProIV colours.
On our pc's the colours display fine but our client is running all Dell pc's and the colours are not displaying correctly (i.e. an enquiry screen displays the available quantity in red on a yellow background but on the clients pc's it's blue on yellow).
Has anybody else come across this before and if so how can it be resolved?
Could it be due to different graphics drivers?

We experienced the same problem.
We had previously had the issue that Neil mentions - in our case we were copying pivs from XP boxes to older boxes and the path of proivconst.ini referenced windows rather than winnt.
When we had corrected the path issue we found that a couple of users with older boxes were still having colour problems. My colleague did some investigation and was convinced that it made a difference if you assigned a colour name (object.BackColor = 'YELLOW') or an RGB value (object.BackColor = "255,255,64"). I forget now which one he thought was causing the problem but it may be worth a little experimentation.

Later 5.5 clients can experience prolems with locating the proivconst.ini set during installation. This seems to work best when located in the original windows directory and is also set in the Regional settings tab of the client options.

It turns out Kelvin's suggestion turned out to be the problem, so thanks Kelvin
Just in case anybody else has the problem, the colours should be defined as RGB (i.e. 255,255,0) not as 'RED' etc. Very strange that it worked fine on all of the PC's in our office but not on the clients Dell PC's.
Again, many thanks
