Discussion

The OF directive allows you to specify the formatting of a button's label when the button has focus. Normally, it would be paired with a O directive, which defines the button's label when the button does not have focus. When you have multiple directives in a Format string, you separate them with semi-colons ";".

 Example

ui_dlg_box("Demo",<<%dlg%
{wrap=60}
This example shows how you can do 'Web Style' buttons. Watch what happens when you move the mouse over a button.;
{lf};
Each button has two owner draw strings. The string defined by "O" is used when the button does not have focus. The "OF" string is used when the button has focus.;
{lf};
