Introduction

The active text control behaves very similar to buttons. It shows up as regular text with the additional functionality that you can click and select it. The dialog's currently selected Active Text control will be underlined to indicate its status. By default, the first Active Text control is selected. When the mouse cursor hovers over an instance of this control, it will show up in the color defined in the colorActive property.
Notice: This control doesn't render the usually common colorBackground property and colorText is replaced with color.

  • For Arrowhead, this is not true. The properties are there, and it might be an attempt to standardise, or to account for pictures

Missions: Since Arma 3 v2.02 one can use the import SomeClass; to initialised a class. In older versions use "Default" call BIS_fnc_exportGUIBaseClasses; and paste the result into the description.ext.
