Hi All

I have a Membership Database running on MySQL 5.1 with an LO Base Front end Ver All running on PCLOS 2012. My Members fall into two or three different Categories and I would like to be able to show this on screen.

SO - Is it possible to add in a statement to the Form design so that the background colour of the Form will change depending on the value set in a field called 'Cat'?

Something like....
IF 'Cat'="abc" THEN Bgd Colour = "<colour string1>" OR
IF 'Cat'="cde" THEN Bgd Colour = "<colour string2>"

Thanks for any help!!

To do this you will have to create a macro. Use the Events tab of the Control tool to assign the macro to 'Cat'. I don't know how well you understand macros nor how to create them. I don't have any experience in using macros, so I can not make any suggestions as to the required macro's content. From what little I have seen, it may contain some lengthy lines of code. Others with macro experience may be able to point you in the right direction.
