hi guys,

I want to highlight some values in a listview. For example: if a field contains "whatever" the background color of that specific field in the table should be green.

Is that possible or do I have to implement a new type of listview?

thx Peter

So I found a way to highlight a whole line by adding:

<tree colors="red:my_key='my_value'">

to my xml view file.

like mentioned here:


But if only one field not the whole line is needed to colorize the qweb template must be modified.

Take a look here:
