Text color in Find Mode
Is it possible to change the color of text of a field in the Find mode.
For example, normally all text is black but when you enter find mode the text it that field will be Blue.
Yet it works for me. Here's what I did, see if you can spot any differences:
I selected some layout text in layout mode and selected conditional formatting...
I clicked "Add" and entered Get (WindowMode) = 1 into the box to the right of the "Formula Is" drop down.
I selected "Blue" for a text color.
I then selected a text field and followed the same steps, but selected "formula is" before entering the above expression.
I selected "Red" for a text color.
Now I saved my layout changes and entered find mode:
The layout text is blue. If I enter text in the field and exit the field, the entered text is red.
Use the following conditional format:
Get(WindowMode) = 1
And specify a blue text color.
It would not work the way you suggested but if i used Get(WindowMode) ≠ 1
and swapped the colors, it worked.
What do you think caused the = not to work?
That makes no sense to me.
I just tested this to make sure I didn't have a goof somewheres.
If I select layout text and use the expression as described, I can change the text to blue in find mode. It also works for the contents of a field.
It does work but, the color only changes after i commit the record. Which does not work for me because in find mode if the text is white, you cant see what your typing.
Anyway, your help let me to a solution.
