Changing Color In IIf Statement?

Feb 1, 2007

I have this expression:

=IIf([Text131] Between 16 And 30,"Unacceptable",IIf([Text131] Between 31 And 42,"Marginal",IIf([Text131] Between 43 And 56,"Effective",IIf([Text131] Between 57 And 71,"Very Good",IIf([Text131] Between 72 And 80,"Outstanding","")))))

It works just fine, but I was wondering if there'd be a way to change the text color of the <<true>> statement based on what it is? i.e. "Outstanding" and "Very Good" would be green, "Effective" could be yellow, "Marginal could be brown and "Unacceptable" could be red. How would I implement that into this expression, if that's even possible? Thanx for your assistance!

Changing Backround Color

Apr 18, 2006

Hi everybody,

I'm trying to make the backround color of a text box "prova" (short date value) changing according to the values of other two different text boxes "StartDate" and "EndDate" (both are short date values).
I'd like the backround of prova to be blue if its value is between StartDate value and EndDate value.
So in the code builder I made this function:

Private Sub prova_AfterUpdate()

If Me.prova.Value > Me.StartDate.Value & Me.prova.Value < Me.EndDate.Value Then

Me.[prova].BackColor = vbBlue

Me.[prova].BackColor = vbWhite
End If

End Sub

Is that correct?
Thank a slot for your help :confused:

Changing The Color Of A Text Box

Dec 21, 2004

This is very close to the label question that I also have posted. I am trying to get my report to have the back ground of some text boxes turn yellow if they are populated. I can get them to turn yellow, but they turn yellow whether they are populated or not. I have the code in the Report Open event. Here is some of the code that I have.

If Not IsNull(MMSJob) Then
MMSJob.BackColor = 65535
MMSJob.BackColor = vbWhite

Can anyone help me?

Changing The Color Of An Image In A Form

Jun 9, 2005

I have a form which uses a query for entry to the table. One of the fields in the query is a calculated field which shows in the form. The calculated field returns a number from 1 to 5. Rather than showing this number I would like to show a round stoplight that changes color for each number. I have inserted a OLE object OLEunbound235 into the form. The colors I want to use are
icolor = RGB(255, 204, 0) 'Gold
icolor = RGB(192, 192, 192) 'Silver
icolor = RGB(216, 129, 0) 'Bronze
icolor = RGB(255, 255, 0) 'Yellow
icolor = RGB(255, 0, 0) 'Red
and icolor = RGB(255, 255, 255) 'White for any other value.

The text box that returns the calculated number is labeled Text1 and I have hidden this box so it can not be seen. Does anyone know how to write this code that would change the OLE object color automatically so when the user enters data into the form and the return number changes the color of the OLE object changes. I know very little about VBA and I am not sure where to begin or where to even write the code.

Checkbox Changing Label Color

May 30, 2006

How can I indicate with a color change in the label, that a checkbox is checked? I've got it working ...sort of. but when the change occurs it's happening gobally - I want the label to color to apply only to the record I'm viewing. If the check box is checked then the color should be red, otherwise black.

My code is as follows:
Active_Admission.Value = -1 Then

Label1177.ForeColor = vbRed

ElseIf Active_Admission.Value = 0 Then

Labe1177.ForeColor = vbBlack

Exit Sub

End If

End Sub

Also, the condition only works with -1 and 0 - I've read in other places that the condition is 1 and 0. HELP!

Hi, I have a form and want to change the background color and the record scroll/navigation button colors.

Changing the background color is easy; just go into Design View, right click, and change the "background color" properties.

Changing the record select button (on the bottom of the form) is more a challenge for a newbie like me. Does anyone know how to do this? Thanks

Help appreciated.

Changing Color On Multiple Text Boxes

Jan 18, 2005

I have about 25 text boxes on my form that use the dcount or count functions to obtain a number. (Text boxes are labeled 'Text1' through 'Text25')
When the value of the textbox is 0, I would like to have the color of the text box turn red.

Is there a way I can do this using a for loop? Or a with statement?

Checking each one individually just seems like poor programming.
Any thoughts? Ideas?
Thank you.

Is it possible to use two color fonts on one label? I want to bring attention to the user that by clicking a certain button they can perform a search by "Name" and by clicking on the other button, they can perform a search by "Appointment".

I have a switchboard type form with some buttons. The two buttons in question are labeled, "Search for Appts by Name" and "Search for Appts by Appointment". I want to keep the "Search for" section of the button in black font, but change the "by Appointment" and "by Name" to red font.

Reports :: If Statement That Checks Color Of Background

Sep 11, 2013

I have a report. In this report I have a start date and an end date. I also have a date that is going to be checked. The report checks to see if the date the user entered on a different form is between the start and end date of an individual. if it is, a txt box at the end of the line will turn red. If it isn't the box will stay default of green.

What I would like to do is not even show the lines that have a green box. I want to just show the lines that have boxes as red.

I looked into If statements but I'm not quite sure what event I should put them on, nor am I certain I have the syntax right.

I had it:
If (lblAvailability.BackColor = "#CCB13D" Then
txt1.Visible = False
and so on... making all the txt fields invisible. I would rather have them not even show up because I'm pretty sure invisible things still take up room.
End If
