SmarTeam Window in Focus

From version V5R18, SmarTeam implemented a new "Skin" interface. Some people love it, some people hate it. One thing is for certain, the standard "Microsoft" way of viewing a window in focus no longer works.

Go ahead, try it…. With two applications open, select the SmarTeam application. Now select the other application. See, the SmarTeam title bar did not "Gray out" or "Dim" as it should. For most people this is not a big deal. However, if you really wanted to get that functionality back…. you can!

From the Tools menu, select "Options…", then select the "General Options…" button.
This will bring up the "General Preferences" dialog box.

In this dialog, select the "Use OS standard form caption panel" checkbox.
Select OK, and clear out the rest of the dialogs you opened.

The title bar will now use the standard Microsoft method, and you are now free to view the focus of your windows as they should be!.
