I have just started using FM and would like to know how to change the color of a field as data in entered into the field.

ex.. If 1 is entered into a field the background would change to blue...if 2 is entered into the field the background would change to red.

Thanks for the Help!

The best way I know to accomplish this is to set up a calculation field as container to be the background. Create global field with repeating values (as many repetitions as you want colors) and store your solid color blocks in these fields. Then, set up a condition for your background container fields.

Field ColorHolder is the global container

Field ColorContainer is a calculation field defined as:

Case (myField=1,GetRepetition(ColorHolder,1),... etc.

Be sure myField is transparent on the layout.
