Is it possible to change the color of the primary text in DNG?

I want to change the color of the primary text in DNG. Is this possible using javascript or the RM API?

I was able to bold and italicize the primary text through the API. Color is one of the only variables that cannot be changed.

Not easily? You could probably do it using the theme feature with some custom javascript. Can you explain why you wish to change the color of the primary text in DNG? It seems like an odd request and perhaps there is a better solution.

Thanks for replying, Benjamin.

I want to make certain artifacts stand out at a single glance. For example if I have an attribute, Status, and its value is 'done' I would like that artifact to have some kind of visual indicator. I thought to use the primary text of an artifact since it can change colors.

Do you have any suggestions on what else I could use as a visual indicator?

Thank you,

Ah, thanks for clarifying. I'm not aware of a colorize feature for highlighting work items by an attribute. I know this feature exists for RTC work item planning, but I do not believe it exists in DOORS NG. It is a great idea! You should submit a work item!
