Hi Maxim,

Here's a small user macro that should do what you're asking

## @param Selection:title=Selection|type=enum|required=true|enumValues=Grey,Red,Yellow,Green,Blue
#if ( $paramSelection == "Grey" )
  #set ( $colour = "Grey")
  #set ( $text = "Grey text" )
#elseif ( $paramSelection == "Red" )
  #set ( $colour = "Red")
  #set ( $text = "Red text" )
#elseif ( $paramSelection == "Yellow" )
  #set ( $colour = "Yellow")
  #set ( $text = "Yellow text" )
#elseif ( $paramSelection == "Green" )
  #set ( $colour = "Green")
  #set ( $text = "Green text" )
#elseif ( $paramSelection == "Blue" )
  #set ( $colour = "Blue")
  #set ( $text = "Blue text" )  
#end
  
<ac:structured-macro ac:name="status">
    <ac:parameter ac:name="colour">$colour</ac:parameter>
    <ac:parameter ac:name="title">$text</ac:parameter>
</ac:structured-macro>

You can change the name of the selections (in the enumValues on the first line), and then just change the name also in the if statements.

You then substitute the text that you want each color to display where it says "<colour> text".

Note that by using a user macro, you lose the ability to choose the color directly from the editor menu.

There is a way without coding. You can try a Handy Status macro from the Handy Macros for Confluence add-on.
