Thank you, nicely spotted! Things are actually quite a bit
confusing there. It looks as if there were some plans a long
time ago to rename all functions concerning colors and fonts
of Xpopups, a change that never materialized.

I guess your first proposal is the simplest one, also
since fl_setpup_checkcolor() has never been documented,
so it shouldn't have been used by anyone. But, just to
make sure, I will add another #define so that both

BTW, don't take the "deprecated" bit for the Xpopup object
class (and the object classes derived from it) too serious.
I guess they will still be available for a long time to come
since so many existing applications are using them.

And about the new Popup object class: I fear that I will
have to go back to that and make some adjustments in the
future in order to get some more consistency into the way
objects are dealt with by XForms. But that's something
for the next release;-)
