I wasn't sure where this question belonged...(feel free to move it, Lee)

In a system I'm converting from FM11, there exists a set of 4 global containers which are set OnFirstWindowOpen to  4 corresponding pref field containers. This allows for system-wide highlight colors and the ability to change them in one place.

We reference those global containers in unstored calculations, simple example:

dsp_hilite , result container = if ( field=1, gBlue, gGreen)

Then, dsp_hilite is used in the background on a list view to color-code the row and a key is displayed in the footer.

Is there a way with themes/styles/conditional formatting to achieve a similar result and allow for gBlue to be changed in one place? I cannot think of one and will be very happy to be proved wrong. I'd like dsp_hilite to either go away or be stored.

tia, Barbara

Maybe a mockup of the basic file will help?
