    In the User Interface there is an option to enable the "Active Control Element".


    Help File reads: "Select active control element - If enabled, active program features are highlighted (in a frame)'.


    Has anyone noticed any change when they toggled it on? I haven't.

    From p25, right side, upper corner of Eset EAV userguide PDF file:

    "If the Show tooltips option is enabled, a short description of any
    option will be displayed if the cursor is placed over the option. The
    Select active control element option will cause the system to
    highlight any element which is currently under the active area of the
    mouse cursor. The highlighted element will be activated after a mouse
    click."

    Hope this helps :)

    Thank you act8192 for locating some information beyond what the help file says. Unfortunately and until shown otherwise I am going to hold the belief that this "active control element" is not functioning as I see no such 'activity' with it turned on.

    Help File: If enabled, active program features are highlighted (in a frame).
    User guide pdf file: Select active control element option will cause the system to highlight any element which is currently under the active area of the mouse cursor. The highlighted element will be activated after a mouse
    click.


    The only highlighting of any element I have seen is when my cursor is atop some tab. The border of the tab (tab = element?) will then be framed in an orange color. Clicking on the tab will of course do 'something'. However one does not need the "active control element" option turned on for this to happen. This highlighting of the tab frame happens whether the option is turned on or left off as my screenshots will show.

    So just where is this "active element" activity going on? Has anybody actually seen it yet?
    Thanks!
