where do u want this? in view you can use Icons to display , if it is R6, you can use color as your choice for column properties

In a form , the 'normal' way to do this is use hide-whens

create 2 fields (computed for display) of the value you want to show, set the color properties differently, and show 1 of the 2 depending on your conditions.

Partha, not in a view, in a document. Thanks.

Bozzie4, is there other way than two fields approach?

i don't like it. Why we can't change font colors dinamically?
PS: By the way, it is a plain field not a Richtext one.

Notes client or Web?

Instead of using CfD fields, use Computed Text (sorry Tom, your line...)

I believe you cannot do that in Notes client without Hidewhens. The only way is hide when as explained by Tom

If it is browser then there are 10000 ways

why in the name of God we need TWO fields to get a simple thing like that?
Anyway, thanks to all of you.
