Is it possible to deactivate the frame around a button or an edit box if such an element is selected on the MB Panel (PCD7.D4xxx)?

FAQ #101169

Yes, it is possible to deactivate the displaying of the frame.

 

By default there is a frame around a button which is selected on a MB Panel. In case this frame is not desired, it is possible deactivating it by configuring the MB Panel accordingly. There are two possibilities to solve this feature:

VGA MB Panels with firmware version 1.12.11 or newer:

Procedure

  • Go into the setup settings of the panel
  • Choose "Keyboard"
  • Set the parameter "Width of the focus (in pixel) to "0"

After the restart of the panel there will be no more a frame around a selected button or edit box.


For VGA MB panels older than firmware version 1.12.11 or QVGA MB panels, this configuration has to be done by a condiguration file (ubterminal.txt).

Procedure

  • Connect the PC over FTP to the microbrowser panel and get (copy) the file "ubterminal.txt" (on VGA devices) or "config.dat" (on QVGA devices) located in the folder:
    INTFLASH/CONFIG/
    to your PC.
  • Open the file with a text editor and search the expression "uBT_FocusBorderWidth"
  • Modify the value to 0 to deactivate the displaying of the frame.
    "uBT_FocusBorderWidth = 0"
  • Save the file and copy the file from your PC to the microbrowser panel.

After the restart of the panel there will be no more a frame around a selected button or edit box.


Remark
The frame around a selected button or edit box is used to allow the user to know which element is selected.
For displays whiteout touch screen it's the only way to allow the user the select an element on the screen.
