Re: set_field_back A_BLINK problem

I'm sorry, I didn't explain the problem so well...

The terminal that I am using blinks, I'm totally sure.
What I tried to mean is that changing the attribute of the most of the form's fields to A_BLINK works, but it doesn't work for some of them when the field buffer is empty at the moment of the change.

It is a form with 6 fields, the first four of them blink when I change the attribute, but the last two don't.

If I set the attribute to another different than A_BLINK, set_field_back() changes it as well.

Any idea about how to fix it?

Thanks a lot and regards,

no.  It's a common limitation.
In general, terminal backgrounds don't blink.
