Yes, this is quite possible and frequently done.
YourTable::Field1 = "Yes" AND YourTable::Field2 = "Brain"
is an expression that can be set up for every field, layout text object, and button on the layout and you can specify a blue fill color.
You can select all the desired layout objects, then right click and select conditional format to enter this expression and fill color specification once for the entire group.
Sorry, but when you say YourTable etc, how does that relate to the Layout view? Do I click on Format->Conditional? If so, where do I put the expression? Also, is YourTable the same as the name of the database that I created? Thank you very much
When you refer to a field in a script step or a conditional format expression you refer to it by a Tutorial: What are Table Occurrences? name then :: then the name of the field. I don't know the name of your table occurrences so used "YourTable" as a place holder for the name of your table in the expression. In addition to a field, this expression could, instead refer to a $$GlobalVariable if you use a script to assign a value to that variable.
You will have to rewrite the example to refer to your table and field in place of the text I used.
You right click the layout object(s) and select conditioal format.
Then you click New.
Select Formula and then you can either type in the expression you want or you click specify to open the specify calculation dialog that you use throughout FIleMaker to specfiy a calculation expression.
Got it now! Thank you very much.
