I love the color function. Thanks for adding it. So far I'm using it to highlight wishlist books, and formats that need fixing.

Are you reporting a bug or making a comment? That aside, yes you can do this, and no you shouldn't be allowed to.

This dialog is changing quite radically. The new implementation will do something reasonable, either saying 'no' or using the first one that returns a value.

I'm feeling a bit "clueless" right now... I'm sure there is a simple solution but I can't seem to get the coding right.

I'm wanting to test using two fields format and rating.

I know to test rating the correct code (or at least the code that works) is: {rating:switch(1,green,2,red,3,green,4,black,5,bla ck,green)}

How can I add code that would test the format field?

What I want it to do is:
If format is false then be red else test rating.

Suggestions?

Absolutely perfect! That also let me add the coding for covers/comments... thank you!

Hi All:

With the latest version I was able to create a colored column, but I guess my expectations must be different than what the actual coloring does. So can I explain what is happening and someone explain whether this is supposed to happen. I created a colored column to change one of my tags to blue if "Read Next" is a value in the field. Now the column heading of that field is the blue color, however if I segment my library using the tag browser or a saved search the heading of the column stays blue whether there are books in that sub-set with the value or not. My expectations are that the column for the book(s) which meet the criteria would turn blue not the heading of the column. Is my assumption correct or incorrect. What is supposed to happen?

Here is my condition:

<p>Set the color of <b>#sectag</b> to <b>aliceblue</b> if the following
conditions are met:</p>
<ul><li>If the <b>#sectag</b> column <b>has</b> value: <b>Read Next</b></ul>

Nyn

coloring changes the color of the text in the columns. The blue heading you are seeing is probably how windows highlights the currently sorted column.

EDIT: What kind of column is #sectag?

The new interface is neat.
Question: is the (tag) Value: supposed to show the tagname I set?

I have a Tag <In Paper Library> that sets the Title to Blue (it works), but nothing shows for Value in the existing 'color the columns' display.

Not sure what you mean, you mean the value <In Paper Library> is not shown in the list of rules?

The renderer must think it is an html tag.

I was thinking it might be something like that.
I think I chose that style of Tag so the "Catalog" would ignore it.

@nyn: there was a bug when using "has" with a tags like column. I've uploaded a fixed build, so if you re-download and re-install and then re-create your rule which should then work as expected.

More generally, the fixed build also fixes a bug with "is set" and "is not set" rules and enables the use of composite columns in the rules.

Apologies, there were too many combinations for me to test them all before the release.
