Conditional Formatting

0 views 0

Using conditional formatting, you can apply formatting based on the outcome of pre-set conditions (set at design time) and checked at run time. Conditional formatting is applied at runtime on a field or a label control as shown in the examples below:

  • Display the record in Bold if result of a student is ‘Fail’.
  • Display the figure in red and in braces if the profit figure is ‘Negative’.
  • Display the sales value in light blue background if the sales target is met, in yellow if the target is missed by up to 25 %, and in red if it is missed by more than 25%.

Before applying conditional formatting, you should set the required conditions and required formats.
