Conditional formatting based on values from another table/layout

Question asked by Kathy on Aug 7, 2014

I have a layout that is essentially a list of links; I'll call it Menu and it isn't associated with any table. Each link takes you to a particular record. Each record has a field that will contain one of two values, for example, true or false. If the value is true, I want the color of the link for that particular item to be blue in the 'menu' layout and red if the value is false.


Is it possible to implement this type of formatting where I can conditionally format text on a layout from the values in a field from a another table.


Table: Account


ID (An integer)

Status (True or False)


Layout: Menu


1 <-- is a link that takes you to a layout and displays the record where ID = 1, if Status = true, text color = blue.




I hope that makes sense.
