Modify output text from formula in virtual field?

Question

Is there a way to modify the output text from a formula, for example making the text red or bold?

KG

PS: I often use HTML block to show warnings in red, but that required me to insert a new section and a few other virtual fields. Modifying the output text would be easier.

What formula and DataPage are you using? If it is a CASE WHEN statement in a report DataPage, then it is possible like in this post.

 

Many thanks @GoodBoy, this work for me in a virtual field with CASE WHEN statement and two conditions, in a form data page! I will test it some more tomorrow, but it looks good for now! This forum is invaluable../KG

Hi @KG360 - you may try this sample code if you would like to change the color of all Virtual Fields in the DataPage.
 

<script>
document.addEventListener('DataPageReady', function (event) {

    var elems = document.querySelectorAll("input[name*='cbParamVirtual']");
    elems.forEach((elem) => {
        elem.addEventListener('change', function () {
            if (elem.value === 'CORRECT') {
                elem.previousElementSibling.style.color = 'green';
            } else {
                elem.previousElementSibling.style.color = 'red';
            }
        });
    });
});
</script>

This will make the font color Green if the value of the Virtual Field is CORRECT and if not, it will be Red.

Many thanks @Meekeeethat looks like a very elegant solution, will try it out. Several of the virtual fields are hidden but changing their color should not affect their role in formulas I suppose. Will let you know how it goes once I have tried it out.
