By | August 4, 2017

Introduction:

We had a business requirement to change the background color of the List Row based on the status of the record i.e. change the background color of List Row to red if the record status is inactive.

Steps to change the background color of List Row:

1. In Resco Woodford project, go to the Account entity > Expand it > Click on the View. Once you click on the view, the List of views will open as shown in the screenshot below;

5. Once you have completed the above four steps, we would now need to add Row Script to the view. Row Script defines when the above two row are switched based on the record status. For example, in the Row script you define, if the record is inactive then show the ‘Inactive Account’ row else show the default row. Row Script works similar to the business rule in CRM.

6. To add the Row Script to view, click on the ‘Row Script’ button as seen in the screenshot below;

Using Row Scripts, users can define the conditions that should be met to change the background color of the List Row automatically. This help user to identify what to focus on.
