Hi all

From OLH: Sample getColor:

function backgroundColorButton_onClick
    private rgbValue // Use private for &macro
    rgbValue = getcolor()
    if rgbValue # ""
       form.colorscheme1.rowset.fields[ "BACKGROUND" ].value = rgbValue
       define color SAMPLE_BG &rgbValue
       form.sampleBackground.colorNormal = "SAMPLE_BG"

but row   if rgbValue # ""  does in dBase 2019 not work as it should
it gives back allwas a false

I tried also in the command-window:

a = "171,91,242"
? a = ""

gives me back a true

Is that a bug or not?

See screenshot attached.
