Context in colors and fonts

Context in colors

This addon allows to use the current context in colors, thereby allowing i.e. search filters changing the colors used in a tree view. This also works for the fonts attribute.


You might define a search filter:

<filter name="paid_green" string="Show paid invoices in green" context="{'paid_should_be_green': True}" />

And then you could use:

<tree colors="green:state == 'paid' and context.get('paid_should_be_green')">

in your tree view. Take care here that the first match wins, so order your color expressions accordingly.
