Conditional formatting of a table

Hi,

We're using Atlassian Confluence 4.2.13.

I wanted to apply cell color to a table cell, depending on the value of today's date.

eg: if Planned end date is greater than Today, green; else red or yellow.

Could you pls suggest how to do this?

Regards,

Your best bet it to use JavaScript to do this. You can find more info here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5066882/conditional-formatting-of-html-table-cells

Hello!

For conditional formatting in Confluence you may use CelesteCS Conditions for Confluence.

Assume you need to set a specific background color for some values on your table, for example, for 'Yes' make it light-green and for 'No' make it light-red. You just put your table into Conditional Rules Manager macro and add two Conditional Rule macros to specify rules of type 'Element Value Is Equal To', which is by default. In one of the rules you specify 'Value 1' = 'Yes' and 'Background color' = 'highlight-green' and in another one 'Value 1' = 'No' and 'Background color' = 'highlight-red'. That's it! The cells will be formatted appropriately.

As you see, it's very simple - just add a couple of macros and configure it properly. No need for doing it manually, writing user macros or use source code editors.

There are more than a dozen of conditional rule types supported. Plus, you may replace the text, not just to format it.

We are the CelesteCS Conditions for Confluence plugin vendor, so you may contact us directly if you have any additional questions or suggestions.

Thanks!
