Check the color of text?

I have 4 rows of 96 *'s.

I used a script that I found on here that will allow the user to select a section of the row and change the text color to red. Now I want to write a script that will go through the string of 96 *'s and count the red ones, or maybe the black ones if it's easier...

I don't see a scriptMaker function that can check the color of the text? Anyone have any ideas?

Mainly I'm using this to create a graph of a 24hr period (broken into 15min sections) to show where our drivers have been.

On Duty Not Driving

Any help would be appreciated.

The function you need to use is GetAsCSS. But it won't be easy. Also, IMHO, there are better ways to let users input data (buttons, for example).

NOTE: GetAsCSS is a calculation function. There are no script functions in Filemaker - only script steps.
