Treeview node not highlighted in Windows 7 - Vista OK
Posted on 2012-03-22
I have a treeview consisting of a list of products on the left hand side of screen. When an item in the treeview is selected a subform of the main form to the right of the treeview displays the details of the item.
When the database runs under Vista if control is lost to the subform, the item on the treeview is still highlighted - less brightly but greyed over. So its still clear to the user where he/she is in the treeview. I dodn't do anything to achieve this - it just happens by default.
If my database runs on Windows 7 this semi-highlight is lost completely.
I have searched around the forum and the web but I can't find any way to keep the selected node highlighted when the treeview has lost focus.
In Windows 7 I also lose the horrible grey background to tab control - which I don't mind! - I think the difference to the treeview might be something to do with this; Any ideas?
