I have a code that sets values in the fields.

If v_load_drive_details_rec.total_drives > c1_rec.crew then
            set_item_property(v_item_name3_c, VISUAL_ATTRIBUTE, 'VA_RED');
End if;

Its putting the color on all the fileds. But I wanted this only if the condition is satisfied. I  have enclosed the picture for the one that needs to be color.

Help is appreciated.

I think you need to use: "set_item_instance_property" instead of "set_item_property".  The difference is: "set_item_property" will affect all records in a multi-record block, while "set_item_instance_property" will only affect one one record (the current record).

I supect that what is "not working" is your "if" condition.  That "set_item_instance_property" command *IS* the command you need to change an attribute for just one item (or: field) in one record of a multi-record block.

The other possibility is that CURRENT_RECORD does not have the value you expect it to have.  What trigger are you calling this in?  Is there any possibility that the form has navigated to a different record in the block than the one you want to have changed?

What "Did not work"?  The "set_item_instance_property" command will do exactly what you asked for, if I understood your question correctly.  I think your question is basically: "how can I change the background color for one field (item) of just one record in a multi-record block"?
