Conditional formatting in listbox items in MS Access
Posted on 2011-02-14
In the attached Access application, reference the form frmPatient. There is a listbox in the bottom right called lstUnprintedRecs. As you are adding new patients (whose records have not been printed), they are populated in the listbox. The purpose of the listbox is to allow the user to quickly reference all unprinted records (patients) by clicking on the list item & navigating to that particular record. Once item is printed, it is deleted from that listbox. All that works.
I would like to be able to color code (to indicate criticality) the listed items in the listbox as I add them. For e.g, when I add a new record (patient), I should be able to specify criticality of patient by selecting either Red, Blue, Green (via another combox box or radio buttons). Hence, when the patient name appears in the listbox as a listed item, it has the background of the specific color? As different patients/records/items are added, each listed item should have the background color specified for it. I doubt this is possible, but thought I'd ask.
