Data Report - Color of one Column - can it be customized?

Question

Hi,

I am pretty sure this can be customized, I just am not an experienced programmer.  I have one of the fields in my report output as an HTML link.  The font color for the text to click to the link is white and does not show up unless the row is selected.  Lowest common denominator here is my end users will not think to do that to see the link and I get that.  So, I would like to change the color of the text so that it shows up on the screen when the report is run.  As you can see the column for the link is great and the text for the link is white and VERY diffiucult to see in the results.  So I just want to change the text color in the report .  

I know it is probably easy for a lot of people and they can do this in their sleep, but I am no programmer.  I don't even know where to go to see the code and how it is generated and how to modify it.  I am willing to learn and am an IT professional by day, so I can learn.  Anyways, I hope the programming gods can provide leniency and wisdom on how to fix this issue, which I suspect is not super difficult, but a bit beyond my means to figure out completely.  Thanks!  (The search results work great, just the end result needs some polish!)

Hi @BrianJ, I understand that you would like to customize and change the text color in the report. In this case, there are certain ways to do this in Caspio.  you can use this, let's say for the student grading system to help your users easily identify their grades.

This article explains how to apply custom background and font colors conditionally based on the values in a report.

There is also a similar forum post that you can refer to here

Thanks RuisiHansamu!  This gets me going in the right direction.  I just need to dig in figure this out.  I appreciate it!

Hi BrianJ

You can try the following:

In your HTML blok, in your link add and ID. Example: id="mylink"
Then add Header and Footer. Inside Header add the following code:
Change the color based on your needs.


 

<style>
#mylink {
  color: red;
}
</style>
