SV: [gme-users] Changing the color of diagram objects?

I have started looking at the GReAT source code as Attila recommended, but I am not able to compile the project. Therefore I have used the tutorial lesson 3, in order to test my program setup.


I am experiencing the following problem:

I am using Visual Studio C++ Express and I am not able to compile the created Builder Object Network II source code.


It gives me a pop-up that I have attached. 

Is this why I cannot compile the project or it is not compatible with my version of Visual Studio?

I think an add-on (GME component) listening to OBJEVENT_ATTR event code (Attribute changed) could do that.
Preferences (including color) are stored in the object registry (right click, then Registry).
The "color" node in case of models will indicate the filling color of the model box.
This can be implemented in C++ as a Raw COM component. I don't know if Java BON supports add-ons.

	I have raised the question in one of my previous responses to the list, but I have not received any reply. Therefore I will try again, because it seems to be a simple question.


	Is it possible to change the color of an object in the diagram, depending on an attribute value of that object.

	Model.Enable can be set to true or false, is it possible to do:

	"if self.Enable then let self.color = 0x0000FF else self.color = 0x000000 endif" as a 

	1. Constraint attached to the object? or

	2. Can I use a "if then else" in the general preference field of the object? or

	3. Use the Java BON interface to do so?

	If it is possible how could it be done?

	I know the above will not work I have tried it ;-)
