I know Genx, and that was the way I read it too. However, sense if you squint your eyes, and turn your head sideways, you can almost read it the way I responded.

:giggle:

Anyway, I thought I would show them a way that might work for them.

hi Lee,

helpful tip there, I like it.

Is there anyway to change the background color instead of the text using this method?

I thought of a way involving container fields behind transparent drop lists. but i think your method would be preferable.

many thanks.

To change the background of the field using container fields as you mentiond is the only way it can be done. In fact, until V7 came out, it was the only way we could change the look of a field.

If you don't have an example, let me know and I'll point to one.

If you do a search for the keywords of +background +color

I will return several Thread where this has been discussed.

Take a look at the file I posted Link

When doing a search, if you use the pluses like I have shown, it will only return threads with those words in it.

good call Lee, glad i checked your demo, as i was using containers in a seperate table, then using a relational link to trigger the change of color.

It works ofc, but if im setting this up for 20 fields i dont fancy 20 relational links.

Thanks again Lee.

haha,

ive got it. sorry about that.

the file i was working on is hosted on a server (so it gets backed up daily etc).

and when u play with globals remotely it doesnt store, so i moved to the server and did it. all done!

Thanks for all the help
