What are the possibilities of decoration?

Is there a list with all posibilities for the 'decoration-xxx' attribute for OdooV9? I noticed that full bootstrap support is not given (f.i.: decoration-bg-danger="xxx").

Is it possible to combine the conditional statements?

Example: decoration-info="(duration>5) and (duration<10)"

Is it therefore always necessary to define a state in the python file to be able to use the necessary decoration?

decoration-bf - shows the line in BOLD

decoration-it - shows the line in ITALICS

decoration-danger - shows the line in LIGHT RED

decoration-info - shows the line in LIGHT BLUE

decoration-muted - shows the line in LIGHT GRAY

decoration-primary - shows the line in LIGHT PURPLE

decoration-success - shows the line in LIGHT GREEN

decoration-warning - shows the line in LIGHT BROWN

You can review the RNG file defining the allowable XML tags and attributes at https://github.com/odoo/odoo/blob/9.0/openerp/addons/base/rng/view.rng


As applied to Boolean fields:

<tree decoration-muted="scrapped == True" string="Stock Moves">

Nice answer Ray! Just wondering: how could you use decorations in combination with boolean fields?

Just for the record: when using different website themes, these colors may vary according to the theme settings.
