Because that's what set_item_property does. It affects all occurrences of an item on the form.
If you want to affect individual occurrences then you need to use set_item_instance_property.

Set_Item_Instance_Property( 'DEPT.DEPTNO', CURRENT_RECORD, VISUAL_ATTRIBUTE,'MY_COLOR'); 

I used the above code in the trigger , it is giving me same action.

Is this code effects at the runtime?

Why the Deptno Field shows me RED Color before(after the form open)

Did you remove the set_item_instance call from WNFI?

Yes, i need only how many deptno's are displayed in the canvas, i don't want to see the Color for empty records in the Deptno column.

And why the color is not effecting? i mean it is effected before, but we can do without visual attribute right? I mean we can change the field baground color right?

please explain me if i did any wrong

Are you asking if you can set background colour directly?
