Font colors and highlighting

Top  Previous  Next

Sometimes it is necessary to highlight values and/or change the font color. We have looked at this in the group report example, where we used conditional highlighting for “Text” objects. Conditional highlighting can also be useful for us here.


To add highlighting to our example report, assuming we need to change the font color for values greater than 3000 - select the object representing the table cell and set the highlighting parameters by clicking the highlight button _img147 on the toolbar. The familiar highlighting editor window will open where this condition can be set:


Value > 3000


and the font color set to red:




This is all that is required. Close the editor by clicking on the OK button and preview the report:




Likewise total values can be highlighted, if required, and also cells and lines using the background and frame color buttons.
