Using CRAXDRT for format formulas?

Using CRAXDRT for format formulas?

Using CRAXDRT for format formulas?

I know how to use CRAXDRT to change user formulas at runtime.  

Does anyone know how to read or change the 'formatting' formula for a specific object via CRAXDRT - or if it is even possible? (These are the  formulas normally entered in the 'Format Editor' such as the Suppress Formula, the Font Color formula, etc.?)

Example: I would like to use CRAXDRT to set the font color formula for {customer.YTDSales} at the time I execute the report based on the situation at the time it is run.  The formula would be based on fields not in the report, and while I can think of ways to work around the problem, like setting user formulas and having the formatting formula point to a user formula, I am curious as to whether these formatting formulas are exposed and can be read or set at run time via the CRAXDRT, or only using the CR designer itself.
