Is it possiable to add different colours to a field that has a value list. in other words..depending on what item was selected from the value list would determin what colour the wording is?
You need to modify the field using auto-enter calculation
self = "red" ; TextColor ( self ; RGB ( 255 ; 0 ; 0 ) ) ;
self = "green" ; TextColor ( self ; RGB ( 0 ; 255 ; 0 ) ) ;
self = "blue" ; TextColor ( self ; RGB ( 0 ; 0 ; 255 ) )
Value list has nothing to do with this, BTW. It looks at the field contents - no matter how it was entered. That is, unless you are talking about a field formatted as a checkbox or radio button set.
