• Input Box Colour

    From AVON@46:3/103 to ALL on Thu Jan 31 19:20:24 2019
    How do I set the input box colour used in the user name and password login stage to have a black background and not blue?

    The Mystic prompt options appear to not let me specify this.

    Check out the prompt editor, but go to "2: Options". Field Color 1 and 2 is probably what you're looking for.

    If you want to turn off the input field box you use |IF in the prompt and the next input will not have the box. You can also use |IN## to limit the input box size to ## characters (still allowing longer text to be inputted, it just scrolls within those constraints).

    Otherwise, you can change the color of the characters, and the "fill"
    character and color in the theme options.

    I thought so too but turns out it was not, hence the post to the echoarea. Thanks for the suggestion, great minds alike and all ;-)

    This is the info I was after - thanks!
