Can conditional formatting use calculated field names?
A script enters default text into ChiefComplaint::Data. The requirement is that the text color is gray initially but turns black once a user modifies the text.
This Conditional Formatting dialog formula satisfies that requirement...
ChiefComplaint::ModifiedWhen = ChiefComplaint::CreatedWhen
This one doesn't...
GetField ( Get ( ActiveFieldTableName ) & "::ModifiedWhen" ) = GetField ( Get ( ActiveFieldTableName ) & "::CreatedWhen" )
Code reusability is my reason for preferring the second formula; it would work for any active field without making changes to the conditional formatting formula each time.
