How to Apply Conditional Formatting to Column on Flat Grid

Morales, Julio César Álvaro asked on January 14, 2021

Good Day, 
I’m trying to apply a custom format to an entire column based on another column that is contained in the datasource. I’m currently getting 5 columns in the datasource, but I don’t want to show the 5th one: ‘HEALTH_STATUS_CL”, I just want to use the value in that column. So I put the 4 I want in the columns slice section and make the formula referencing the 5th column but none of the cells is being painted in the color I selected in the condition, what can I do for it to work?

var pivot = $(“#pivotContainer”).flexmonster({
    componentFolder: “”,
    toolbar: false, 
    report: {
        dataSource: { data: jsonTotal },
        options: {
            grid: { type: “flat” },
            configuratorActive: false,
            showAggregationLabels: false,
            showTotals: ‘off’,
            showGrandTotals: ‘off’
        conditions: [
                formula: “‘HEALTH_STATUS_CL’ = ‘GOOD'”,
                column: ‘HEALTH_STATUS’, 
                isTotal: false,
                format: {
                    “backgroundColor”: “#8CE092”,
                    “color”: “#000000”,
                    “fontFamily”: “Arial”,
                    “fontSize”: “12px”
        slice: {
            columns: [
                { uniqueName: “FISCAL WEEK” },
                { uniqueName: “HEALTH_STATUS” },
                { uniqueName: “ITEM” },
                { uniqueName: “DESCRIPTION” }  
        types: {
            ‘FISCAL WEEK’: { type: ‘string’ },
            HEALTH_STATUS: { type: ‘string’ },
            ITEM: { type: ‘string’ },
            DESCRIPTION: { type: ‘string’ }

Hello, Julio,

Thank you for writing to our forum.

Please kindly note that only number comparison is currently supported in condition formulas. Our team suggests changing the HEALTH_STATUS_CL column to a numeric one. For example, replace "Good" with 1 and "Not Good" with 0.

We have prepared the following example for illustration:

Please let us know if any further questions occur.

Kind regards,
