I'm having a play with Text Labels and have noticed the following...

The background colour selection does not seem to make any difference to the background colour. It always seems to be the same as the skin. I've tried change the opacity and it doesn't seem to make any difference. Also, I had a look at your "GUI Update Timer" example and it seems to exhibit this bug - the GUI design has set the background colour to a value (a very dark grey) but the displayed colour is the skin.

I couldn't get the border to change colour, either.

Also "GUI update timer" example you state ...

"case GUI_Update_Timer: // Called every 100ms (by default) if turned on"

whereas if I create my own module your generated code states...

"case GUI_Update_Timer: // Called every 50ms (by default) if turned on"

Many thanks...

BTW is this the best place to report possible bugs?

Hi there,
panic over.

The solution is as follows:
- as the manual says, the alpha is, by default zero.
- when you set either the background or border colour in the choose color dialogue, also remember to set the alpha.

Sorry to have wasted anyone's time with this one.

(BTW - I'm still not convinced about the default GUI timer interval comment.)
