How do I change the colour of the border that appears around a selectable object during runtime, whenever the mouse pointer is hovered above it? 

There is a Citect.ini parameter, which allows you to do this.

Note: CitectSCADA Version 6 uses true colour thus the value for colour must be specified as a RGB Value, as show below.

Colour = 0xFFFFFF !RGB Value

Allowable Values: 0x000000 to 0xFFFFFF

Colours defined as RGB values, for example:

0x000000 - (Black)
0x000080 - (Blue)
0x008000 - (Green)
0x008080 - (Cyan)
0x800000 - (Red)
0x800080 - (Magenta)
0x808000 - (Brown)
0xBFBFBF - (Grey)
0x7F7F7F - (Dark Grey)
0x0000FF - (Light blue)
0x00FF00 - (Light green)
0x00FFFF - (Light cyan)
0xFF0000 - (Light red)
0xFF00FF - (Light Magenta)
0xFFFF00 - (Yellow)
0xFFFFFF - (White)
Default Value: 0xFFFFFF (white)

In order to achieve the above for CitectScada versions prior to version 6, colour value is the code defined in the colour palette file as shown below.
