Change text color based on value

Change text color based on value

dabaqdabaq Posts: 6Questions: 3Answers: 0

I'm trying to work out some conditional formatting for column 4 and 5, based on these criteria:

if value <= 0, color here
if value => 1, color here
if value => 2, color here
if value => 3, color here
if value => 4, color here
if value => 5, color here

I've read I need to use rowcallback in order to use this, but I can't get my head around it.

Best regards

    If its just the text colour, use a renderer and put it in a span with the correct colour for the value.

    Thank you for your reply Allan. However I have no idea how to do that, I'm very new to this. Could you point me in the right direction? I thought I could get away with a simple if else statement.

    @kevin, how to change color for two columns which have different values, say column 5 has Yes/No and column 7 has Locked/Unlocked. thanks

    Is there a way that I can put the color in it's specific <td> ?
    I want to avoid putting the <span> tag cause it'll blow other script that I have.
    I wish to highlight the 'Waiting definition' value in a specific column and I think that if I could add the class above in <td>s that have this value it'd be perfect

    .redText {
    color:#F00 !important;
    }
