Changing Text color based on value of query

I would like to have my results page display the value of the "status" column
with the color of the value.

Example: "status" can be red. yellow or green.
If the "status" is yellow I would like it to display the yellow value in bold yellow text.

Hi tmurray22,
Do you have a reference page or source to post?

Basicly you can use CSS to accomodate this.
You could name the column with an id, for example id="status", and then apply the style to that elment.

document.getElementById("status").style.color = status

using status as a variable containing any of the colors.

It would be easier to describe and try to solve if you present the code here.

In your database results display page switch to html view and find

<!--#include file="_fpclass/fpdbrgn1.inc"-->
<!--webbot bot="DatabaseRegionStart" endspan i-checksum="56121" -->

Immediately after this code enter

<%
varStatus = fp_rs("Status")
If varStatus = "red" OR varStatus = "Red" Then
    varFontColor = "FF0000"
    varBstart = "<b>"
    varBend = "</b>"
Elseif varStatus = "yellow" OR varStatus = "Yellow" Then
    varFontColor = "FFFF00"
    varBstart = "<b>"
    varBend = "</b>"
Elseif varStatus = "green" OR varStatus = "Green" Then
    varFontColor = "00FF00"
    varBstart = "<b>"
    varBend = "</b>"
Else
   varFontColor = ""
    varBstart = ""
    varBend = ""
End if
%>

In the line where you display you results you will find something like:

<!--webbot bot="DatabaseResultColumn" s-columnnames="ID,Name,Modified,CDDVDClientJob" s-column="Name" b-tableformat="TRUE" b-hashtml="FALSE" b-makelink="FALSE" clientside b-MenuFormat preview="&lt;font size=&quot;-1&quot;&gt;&amp;lt;&amp;lt;&lt;/font&gt;Name&lt;font size=&quot;-1&quot;&gt;&amp;gt;&amp;gt;&lt;/font&gt;" startspan --><%=FP_FieldVal(fp_rs,"Name")%><!--webbot bot="DatabaseResultColumn" endspan i-CheckSum="3900" -->

This is the webbot results for displaying your field information

bracket this information with
<font color="<%=varFontColor%>"><%=varBstart%>........<%=varBend%></font>

It isn't working, Not sure I Bracketed the information you supplied correctly. I'm not getting any errors just not the color change.

Found a few mistakes
Starting with <p align="center"> delete everything from that point and replace with the code after my initials.

I assume you wanted BuildStatus bracketed with the font color changes --

You had <font color=<%=varFontColor%>"><%=varBstart%></font>

which should read <font color="<%=varFontColor%>"><%=varBstart%> your data starts here

then after your data put <%=varBend%></font>

also you had the code beginning on the line for SystemRelease vice BuildStatus

Glad to help and hope you enjoy. The power of adding some VBScript to FP is unlimited. You can do things like alternate row colors, change background colors, show different pictures, etc. all based on the results of the db query.

Have fun and thanks for the points.
