    FileMaker Pro 9 has a new feature called conditional formatting. The purpose of this feature is to allow you to dynamically format text (font, size, style, fill, color, etc.) without needing to trick the user interface with calculation fields. This file will demonstrate some of the new conditional formatting techniques that are easily achieved with the new function. Plus it will harness the concept of old-school concepts to bring forth new opportunities for next-generation user interface techniques.
