Field suggestion in gray
How can I accomplish this...would I have to implement the conditonal formatting somehow...see attached pic
It is easy !
Place a text block over that field with the string "First", and color it gray.
Then conditional format that string with the calculation:
Not IsEmpty ( YourTable::Name )
to have a font size of 150 points.
Just curious whats the purpose for the font size to be 150 Points.
I use 500. It makes text so large it does not fit in the limits of the text block and thus it disappears.
Be sure and set the text object's background to transparent.
BTW, font size 150 will work but not always, depending upon screen resolution, whether through Citrix. I believe that using 500 in safest for all environments; better to be safe.
By jumbo sizing that text to 500 will that affect anything...ie...like the layouts or anything like that...I just don't want my screen to freak out.
Use it all the time to make text appear and disappear with no trouble so far.
We use it all the time as well; have for over two years extensively. It only affects the text within one field and not other fields or your layout.
