This information in this topic mainly pertains to formatting the text on page fields.

The Style property works together with the StyleExpr Property value to determine whether the field is formatted. If the StyleExpr Property evaluates to true, then the value of the field is formatted as specified by the Style property.

By default, the Style property is not set.

This property is not supported if one of the following data types is used for the SourceExpr of the field:

  • Code

  • Boolean

  • Binary

  • BLOB

  • GUID

  • RecordID

On pages, you use the Style property for group, part, field, and action controls. You can change the formatting of a control either statically by setting the property to true or false, or dynamically by using a Boolean variable or a Boolean field on the page. The Boolean field on the page can be either a true/false Boolean or a Boolean expression, such as “Credit Limit > Sales YTD”.
