FM10 ,.. seeking seconday way of doing conditonal formating
FIrst before I go into my question I fully admit that Conditional Formating of Feilds is as wonderus tool; and I love it dearly. I have noticed in reality it does have some limiations. The biggest limitation is being able to format based on a secondary feild. As in Feild X = [given state] so change Feild Y. I am not seeing any object controls within the calcuiation interface. Am I being too dense or just blinking and missing the obvious.
Specific Question: IS there a way to script from within a calulation an objects color?
Secondary concern about Conditional Formating is that after one enters a HSV value codes they are altered upon closing the menu to 'another set of numbers'; proven by reopneing the menu and seeing the altered change of the previous numbers. One would think that what one has enter is what FM would record for later use. I find this software behaviour is disturbing.
