How do I change the background of a field based on another field's value? Example, if Num field = 1 then change the other field's background to red?Michael Thomas, Formidable slack community member
This is best handled by jQuery so you can see the result in real time. Essentially what you need to do is watch the number field’s change event and when the value changes, you change the target field's CSS class based on the number field value.
