[ARGUS] ratop with racolor blanks our daddr

Hi Carter,

I concur that it looks like the background color is being used. When I highlight to copy and paste into notepad, the data shows up. 

When I use:  filter=“” color=daddr:WHITE”  cont
The whole page goes blank.

If I am explicit on all daddr's (have an explicit filter line for each host), shows up fine, but not scalable so right now the option is to not use racolor.

Using putty, securecrt, terminal from ubuntu, all produce the same results. 

Emulation on SecureCRT is "xterm" using ANSI color.

Thanks for getting back so quickly!

Hey Steven,
I suspect that its using the background color to draw the dad …  I suspect that is maybe a bug ...
All of this is being controlled by your terminal specification and its color map.

What happens if you define the daddr color with a starting line like ???
   filter=“” color=daddr:WHITE”  cont

What “term” are you using ???
Does anything change if you take the STANDOUT out of the definition ???
