When invoking the QB.EXE environment of QuickBasic Version 4.50 or the QBX.EXE environment of Microsoft Basic PDS Version 7.00, the /NOHI switch is used for monitors that display high intensity poorly or not at all. If the /NOHI switch is used with a CGA, EGA, or VGA color monitor, certain menu items are displayed in color. If the /NOHI switch is not used with these monitors, the menus are displayed with white, high-intensity white, black, and gray. Whether or not the /NOHI switch is used when invoking the QB.EXE environment of QuickBasic, these colors cannot be changed from the Options menu. In the QBX.EXE environment of Basic PDS 7.00, the pull-down menu colors can be changed using the Options menu.
With the /NOHI option, menu items in the pull-down menus are displayed in the following default colors:
Color Menu Item ----- --------- Red Highlighted letter of menu items Green or purple Highlighted letter of selected menu items (depending on where the cursor is) Orange Special menu items such as the items in the Edit pull-down menu Gray Background of pull-down menus Black Background of selected menu item
