Fill in colour for repeating subforms

Jul 5, 2012 11:24 AM

I have a repeating subform with max count 5 subforms.

Is it possible the 4th and 5th repeating rows to have another fill colour?


Here is the script I use for the Add Instance button:





Thank you

Here is the script I use for the remove Instance button:




(_Item.count > 1)





Item is a row in a table.

    First off, I would not be inclined to name an object/subform "Item". It is very close to a reserved word "item".


    Also in the addInstance() method, you should pass a parameter. The default is true.


    One route would be to use the layout:ready event of the repeating subform. This is not very efficient, as the layout:ready event fires so often as the user interacts with the form. However it will deal with situations where rows are added and removed.


    if (this.parent.index >= 3) {
         this.fillColor = "255,129,129"; 


    This might give you a start,
