Can I have in a centralized layout conditional formating and then refer to that formating?
If yes how?
I'm not entirely sure what you mean here. Can you elaborate with more detail on exactly what you're trying to accomplish?
First of all thanks for all your replys - really cool.
I have x number of fields over several layouts with several tables. I have the same field in different layouts with different tables and related together. I want to change one and all are then behaving the same way.
Well, depending on exactly how you're defining the conditions, you can make your calculation context-sensitive using several helpful functions:
1) Self (this is often your best friend in Conditional Formatting)
3) Get ( LayoutTableName )
4) Evaluate ( )
These functions will allow you to abstract your calculations so you can easily copy them from layout to layout without them breaking.
Is that sort of what you're asking?
You make me smile
When I programmed I was looking for get(conditional formating;fieldname) to have the colors, of text etc and formulas. But as I write now that can not work as how would FM know which field and in which layout.
But that was what I wanted, to take all of the conditional formating, form the formula to the colors text etc etc.
