hi,

i want to change the text background color as red
ex: if desc is the field in the forms and when i type the word
china in that field then that china backgroud color should change when i move to next item to red for that record alone


in the key_next_item trigger i wrote this

set_item_property('desc' backgroud_colour,'RED');


IS THIS RIGHT
only that particular record should change

SET_ITEM_INSTANCE_PROPERTY should be used.

Do not post in all caps. It is considered shouting, and therefore rude, on all internet forums.

You need to learn to find stuff out for yourself. We are here to help with difficult problems, not to read the documentation for you. Go look it up.


EDIT: missing word

May be, but the difference between you and me is that you need that information (but are too lazy to search for it), and I don't need it. As far as I'm concerned, I can live with it. I just wonder how do you plan to paint that background. Wait forever until someone feels sorry and spoon feeds you, or what?

@owais_baba - We're trying to encourage the OP to look up things himself, so you spoon feed him, while telling him he'll learn more if he does it himself (presumably you don't want him to learn more?).

We say you need to use set_item_instance_property, so you post an example of set_item_property.

You've seriously missed the point(s).

Thank you, both, but - I'm not the one you think I am. I'm far from being and expert - I learn new things daily, simply by reading these forums. There are million things I have never worked with or done so ... take it easy. A true Forms expert is David (djmartin), but he doesn't contribute discussions here any more (that's really bad news, but that's the way it is).

Anyway: I like the idea of sharing information. There are some complex things that require detailed (more or less) explanation; otherwise, it is difficult to solve the problem or it requires much time & effort to figure it out. On the other hand, there are very basic questions that can easily be learnt simply by reading the searchable documentation (such as the one mentioned here). We were all newbies, once. It is attitude that matters.
