ABorder is Border
ABorder.Line = LineDotAndDash
ABorder.Thickness = 1
ABorder.Edges = BorderAll
IF MySelf [= "B" THEN
MySelf[MySelf].BackgroundColor = PastelOrange
IF Right(MySelf[MySelf],1) = 8 THEN
MySelf[MySelf].Font = MyFont
IF Right(MySelf[MySelf],1) = 6 THEN
MySelf[MySelf].Border = ABorder
IF Right(MySelf[MySelf],1) = 2 THEN
MySelf[MySelf].Value = "RESET"
MySelf[MySelf].Font.Color = Black
