color calculation

color calculation

How would i set color to a text with a calculation
for instance. For red text i tried

(RGB ( 1; 0; 0)& "TOTAL #" )

which didn't work it only shows me numbers

RE: color calculation

Give this a whirl:

TextColor ( "I am red" ; RGB ( 255; 0; 0) )


RE: color calculation

Thanks fo ryour reply
What you have as literal text "i am red"

What file maker is telling me is that it is trying to look   for a table and highlights i am red.

This calculation will be set as a tool tip See BELOW-

"Enter the TOTAL # of Hours "&
Staff::First Name & " " & Staff::Last Name &
" worked on the " & Postings::Title&" posting here."

"Enter the TOTAL # of Hours Haitian Fella worked on the           Programing posting here.

I want the TEXT "TOTAL #" to be in bold letters as well as red text.

RE: color calculation

I think the whole question of how to change the color becomes moot when you're talking about tool tips.  I'm about 98% sure that tool tip test is not modifiable in any way.  It is what it is.


RE: color calculation

I meant to say "text" not "test" in that last post.
