Conditional Tab Colour

Postby ScottG » Thu Jun 02, 2016 2:25 am

Is there any way to change the colour of a Tab depending on a database field?
What I am looking to do is within a contact database, for example, when I select a contact I already have a number of tabs of information but now want to have an Alert tab with say 5 check boxes on it. If check box 1 is ticked I want the tab to be Red in colour if any of the other 4 check boxes are ticked then I want the tab to be orange in colour or normal grey if nothing is ticked. (Its an easy visual way to indicate an alert status without going into the Alert tab.

F12 is your friend
identify the handle, fire 'onchange' and apply your-css to the handle

hanstel is right.

Changing a field's background color can be done like this..

Code: Select all
