Dear Experts,

I have a dynamic field that will be either High, Medium or low. Need to know how to change the text color based on the value. High=Red, Medium=Black, Low=Yellow.

Best regards,
AJ

Hi,

<cfset dynamic_field_value = "High"> <!--- this variable is set dynamically based on ur code ... i am assuming the value to be set as high for this example --->

<font face="verdana" size="2" color="<cfif comparenocase(dynamic_field_value,'high') eq 0>red<cfelseif comparenocase(dynamic_field_value,'medium') eq 0>black<cfelse>yellow</cfif>">

I was thinking more like something simpler like

<cfparam name="priority" default="medium"> <!--- you can leave this out if you don't need a default --->

<style type="text/css">
<!--
.high {
      color: #FF0000;
}
.medium {
      color: #000000;
}
.low {
      color: yellow;
}
-->
</style>


<span class="#priority#">Your text</span>

You can also have it this way :

<cfparam name="txtcolor" default="red">
<cfparam name="dynamicfld default"High">

<cfswitch expression="#dynamicfld#">
  <cfcase value="Medium">
    <cfset txtcolor="black">
  </cfcase>
  <cfcase value="Low">
    <cfset txtcolor="yellow">
  </cfcase>
  <cfdefaultcase>
  </cfdefaultcase>
</cfswitch>

<cfoutput>
  <input type="text" name="textfield" value="#dynamicfld#" style="font color:#txtcolor#;">
</cfoutput>

The value of the textfield will depend on the value being set to the parameter "dynamicfld".

Goodluck!
