Conditional formatting of a found set member

Good Morning All.


My title says it all really, but here is the scenario. I want to generate a found set, then I want a button to change colour to indicate that it belongs to the found set across several (maybe 20 maximum) records. So in English what I need is something like "If I belong to a found set then I need to turn green, otherwise I need to remain black"

The solution is for buttons which represent locations on a map. If the location(s) satisfy the criterion set to generate the found set then I want the locations to change colour. Once the found set is discarded then the locations need to return to their normal state. I presume I use use conditional formatting for this, but I'm not sure how to do the 'if I'm a member of a found set' coding to trigger the formatting change.


I'm way out of my comfort zone here (again) so hopefully some kind soul will share some thoughts on this.


Many thanks
