Hi, use the below example code...

In py file

'status' : fields.selection([('single','Single'),('married','Married')],'Status?'),

In xml file

<tree string="Status" colors="red:shop=='single';green:shop=='married' ">

<field name="name"></field>

<field name="status"></field>


This will colour the whole line, not one single field.

Ok thanks, but in this way, the line will be colored in green or red. I want this: name will be colored in green and status in red for example. Thanks
