Windows, Character Mode, Motif
Added PR_HELPFILE property. This feature offers the capability to change the windows
help file at runtime.
The new "Recently opened" menu should be changed to a "Recent files" menu that
Shows new and saved items as well as opened items to better match other applications.
Character mode JAM 5 compatibility - flag to avoid emphasizing pushbutton accelerator
characters. The property is PR_JAM5_NO_ACCEL_EMPH. It can be set with:
@app()->jam5_no_accel_emph = PV_YES
Added Trace Hooks for Java Code. sm_trace() now accepts the "JAVA" and "NOJAVA"
Added a 'Save as PDF...' menu item to the Report Viewer's File menu.
The application property, edit_mask_past_last, has been added. It allows the user to
delete text using the BKSP key, by starting from beyond the last enterable character
allowed by the edit mask. When edit_mask_past_last is set to PV_YES, the cursor can
move to the character past the end of the edit mask if:
* field is longer than the edit mask;
* field is left justified (the default); and
* keyboard is in insert mode.
Added ability to
write to PR_APPLICATION_FONT and PR_STATUS_LINE_FONT properties.
