Tree view background color

I'm asking if there is a way to put a specific background color for some fields on the tree view.

I think you need to see this: forum.openerp.com/forum/topic28208.html

Below is how he did it:

Original code, form sale.view.xml: Code:

<record id="view_order_tree" model="ir.ui.view">
            <field name="name">sale.order.tree</field>
            <field name="model">sale.order</field>
            <field name="type">tree</field>
            <field name="priority">2</field>
            <field name="arch" type="xml">
                <tree string="Sales Orders" colors="grey:state=='cancel';blue:state in ('waiting_date','manual');red:state in ('invoice_except','shipping_except')">
                    <field name="name"/>
                    <field name="date_order"/>....

New code, in myfile.xml :


 <!-- Tree view. Replace colors -->
        <record id="sale_view_order_tree_inherit1" model="ir.ui.view">
            <field name="name">sale.view.order.tree.inherit1</field>
            <field name="model">sale.order</field>
            <field name="type">tree</field>
            <field name="inherit_id" ref="sale.view_order_tree"/>
            <field name="arch" type="xml">
                <xpath expr="//tree[@string='Sales Orders']" position="attributes">
                    <attribute name="colors">grey:state=='cancel';orange:state in ('waiting_date','manual');red:state in ('invoice_except','shipping_except')</attribute>

I hope this helps you.

Hello, Thank you for your answer, but it's not that my problem. I need to change the background color for some column not the color of values.
