This property sets or returns the value of the highlight for a ScreenField. This value is a ScreenField class enumeration. This attribute is initially set for a field by the AddField method.

  %sfield:Highlight = value
  value = %sfield:Highlight
Highlight syntax
An enumeration of type Highlight. Valid values are none, underline, reverse, and blink. The default value is none.
A reference to an instance of a ScreenField object.
Usage Notes

The Highlight method lets you set highlights regardless of the actual terminal type, although some terminals may not display these attributes correctly. Also, many terminal emulator programs allow local customization of highlighting attributes. Under either of these conditions, which are not detectable by the Screen methods, the actual display may not show the intended highlighting.

For an example using Highlight method calls, see “Screen class example”.
