I have a number editable field which will contains 10 or 20 or 35 or 55 etc.
In my view under a column, i have the formula ->
Bgr := 255:255:255;
Chr := 255:0:0;
@If(projectCompP="10";Chr:Bgr;"")
but I do not see the color and the value display?

Please advise. Thank you.

the code will be in a column and for the values to display u need to have another column.
Example:
First column:
red := 255:0:0;
apricot := 0:128:0;
@If(status="Open";red;apricot)
Second column:
Status
0

Hi,

I have tried your solution. It works only for dkgreen:white?
Below is my formula:

red := 255:0:0;
dkgreen := 0:128:0;
dkblue := 0:0:128;
white := 255:255:255;
@If(projectCompP<="99%";dkgreen:white;projectCompP="0%";red:white;projectCompP="100%";dkblue:white;"")

Pls advise.

Use this:
red := 255:0:0;
dkgreen := 0:128:0;
dkblue := 0:0:128;
white := 255:255:255;
apricot := 0:128:0;
@If(projectCompP<="99%";dkgreen:white;projectCompP="0%";red:white;projectCompP="100%";dkblue:white;apricot:white)

Hi,

I have tried your formula but it does not work.
If projectCompP=10% and the projectCompP=100%, they are the same colors.
Is it have something to do with this ->  projectCompP<="99%"?

Pls advise.

in the first column, just give 255:0:0
and see if you get the colors.
And as per not working, it is to do with projectCompP field. make sure it has the data stored in numbers and not in %.
it won't understand %, only numbers you can do it for manupulation.
you do one thing: (if projectCompP is stored with %. and is a +ve)
res:=@If(@Length(projectCompP)=2;@Left(projectCompP;1);@Length(projectCompP)=3;@Left(projectCompP;2);@Left(projectCompP;3));
red := 255:0:0;
dkgreen := 0:128:0;
dkblue := 0:0:128;
white := 255:255:255;
apricot := 0:128:0;
@If(res<="99";dkgreen:white;res="0";red:white;res="100";dkblue:white;apricot:white)
