Conditional fill formula

Hello,

 

My goal is to fill textboxes with different colors based on the values 1, 2, 3, 4.  The issue I'm struggling with being new to this is the text box will always have a letter next to the number e.g. 1a, 1b, 1c, 2a, 2b, 3a, 3b, etc...  Instead of hard coding the exact value, I'd rather create an If statement like,  If(DataCardValue123.Text includes a 1 then change text box fill to red, white).

@trishmalloy 

I would suggest checking the first character of the textbox value using the LEFT function and defining the conditional fill color using a SWITCH statement.

 

Switch
    Left(DataCardValue123.Text,1),
    "1", RGBA(some_color_here),
    "2", RGBA(some_color_here),
    "3", RGBA(some_color_here)
)

 

For example if your DataCard holds the value "1a" the function Left(DataCardValue123.Text,1) would evaluate to

 

"1"

 

Which activates this part of the SWITCH function

 

"1", RGBA(some_color_here),

Hi @trishmalloy 

 

Use Switch

 

Switch(Left( DataCardValue62_2.Text,1),"1",Red,"2",Green,Blue)

 

Replace the colors based on your scenario
