  1. Create a global variable i.e. on the View menu, choose C/AL Globals.
  2. Define the variable, and then set the DataType to Boolean.

  3. Open the Property of the variable then set the IncludeInDataSet to Yes. (I’ve use CFS_Repo as my boolean field)
  4. Create a local function. (in my case UpdateStyle)
  5. Now, code in the function. My requiremnt was such that if field  RepoInitiated is true then the line should should appear red. You can code as per tour requirement.


6. On the trigger OnAfterGetRecord, call the function.

7. Now select the Field in the List page and click on Properties (Shift + F4)

8. Set the Style to Unfavorable and StyleExpr to CFS_Repo (the boolean field )

9. Repeat the step 8 for all fields present on the list page.
