Update of Tab Text for Work item when Tab is populated

Russell Ray (133) | asked Feb 23 '17, 4:50 p.m.

 We are are using RTC and we have created a tab for the work item story.  This tab has several fields that are normally blank.  However, when the fields are populated, we want to denote the table Name in Bold or a color background to indicate there is information in the tab that should be reviewed.  

Is there a simple way to accomplish this?

It can't be simple. You need a function/feature to test the state of of every single attribute within that tab, then set a property accordingly. I see no way to do either of the tasks.

 I am not aware of a way to do this. (except maybe custom attribute presentations). You would have to be able to do it in the Web UI and the Eclipse client.

There are no dynamic properties besides the hide if empty (for the whole tab) that I am aware of that would affect the display. 

The only other dynamic option is the required attribute by condition that you can not use, because if it shows the condition signals missing requirements for an attribute and you can not save.

You should create an enhancement request for a dynamic highlighting of attributes or tabs.
