I'm not sure if it's possible, but I will add it to the list of things to consider.

Well, i need this function too. When can it be used ? :shock:

I would imagine it can be used when and if it is done. :shock:

There are other ways to do this. One would be to draw a rectangle around the grid, and change the border color accordingly. Or, you can locate an icon near the grid that changes as required. Or a text box somewhere would work. Even a popup box. Or an audio file announcing it.

Yes, it would be nice to have this feature built-in, but I wouldn't consider it a "need". It's just eye candy.

Another approach can be achieved creating a customized grid in a WebBrowser Object. Your imagination would be the limit.

Ok, that are some ways to generate eyecatcher, but that is not the way for my custom. This is a wish of mine and i need it for my veterinary surgeon software and it is a proposal of the custom.
So it would be nice to realize this function asap. :wink:

How would you envision this feature would work? How would the grid know which cells to highlight?

How to work ?

If a column have a particularly contents like my program contains '1-U' in the first column , the row may be red. the first column can change in dependence of the contents and so the color will change.

Hope you understand my wish, cause my english is not the best. :oops:

A field in a database can't be an option.

The Not Man: Did you try specifying the subroutine as an onchange subroutine when you open the table?

fieldhopper: Why is adding a field not an option? It can be done on the fly with dbpaddfield.

It is a commercial software and is straight in the use.

I see. Can it be upgraded? What I do in that situation is issue an upgrade that checks for the field in startup and adds it if it isn't found.
