I want to see in red the overdue invoices in the customer invoices list. I can change color of this lines by modifying the account.invoice.tree xml but dont know how to test for overdue.

I would be something like: red:[[and (date_due '&lt' today) (state == 'open')]]

Is this possible?? How would be the correct syntax??

Try this for version 7:

colors="red:state in ('open') and date_due < current_date;"

Worked great! Thanks!
