highlighting documents in a view with colour depending on value

(OP)
Hi,

I have a view, which has a column of training date for an employee. Want to highlight that column with a different colour. Is it possible. how ?
I have used icons to display the overdue status. But, user wants that row with some different colour.
thanks

Have you searched the Designer Help database ? Look for "Setting column colors programmatically" and you shall find the information you need.

I've got nothing to hide, and I'd very much like to keep that away from prying eyes.

Don't remember, but if it is, you should find the same info in the Help database.

RE: highlighting documents in a view with colour depending on value

What I do is make a hidden column in the view, and in the column properties you check the box that says "Use value as color". And for the column selection I put in a formula that says @If (xxx = "yyy" ; "#ff0000" ; "#ffffff") of course you replace the x's and y's with whatever and replace the color value I put in (red) with whatever web safe color value you want.  

RE: highlighting documents in a view with colour depending on value

What I just described only changes the text color not the line color, but it's what I use like in our inventory database to turn the item name and information red if our stock drops below a certain number.
