I'm trying to mark or highlight certain records in list view based on a condition in another field? I can't change the text colour because I use the text colour already for something else. I want to make a background behind the text.

I started with a global container repeating x2

Then I drew a box the size I wanted to use as the 'highlighting/backdrop" for want of a better description. I pasted the box into one repetition and left the other blank.

I added the calc field:

If(

Term=1;

GetRepetition ( Background colours ; 1 );

GetRepetition ( Background colours ; 2 )

)

I put this field onto the list layout under but bigger than the other fields

The calc field gets the box from the container field ok, but the box doesn't fill the calc field completely, so it's either too narrow or too short no mater what I do to the original box, the container field or the calc field.

What am I doing wrong?
