Color within a subfile field

2550 pts.
I saw that BITON can enable coloring an area within a subfile field. Can anyone post an example ? I'll keep researching and will likely figure it out ... this seemed like it could be a fun discussion to post.

What are you looking to color, the field, part of the field the background color?  Most of those can be done in the DDS. We do something like that for color coding our order types. This is what the DDS looks like

A*  FMTS1 - Subfile record                                    
A          R FMTS1                     SFL                    
A            S1REL          1A  B  6  3VALUES('X' ' ' 'V')    
A            S1ORD#         8S 0O  6  5                       
A  08                                  COLOR(RED)             
A  09                                  COLOR(BLU)             
A  10                                  COLOR(YLW)

    Some characters should be RED under certain conditions while the background should stay as-is.

    The subfile field is one long alpha with the alignment of values handled in the program.

    So it looks like I can append a Biton value before and after the target value. So far, I found '234' is Pink and '26' is White. The only Red reference I found says '28', but that can't be since there is no bit 8.

    '28' is the HEX value, not the bit pattern

    If your subfile record is a single large alpha field, then to colour a single 'field' within you will need to put a x'28' (or other colour value) before it and a x'20' after it - otherwise the rest of the line will be in the same colour.

    Note that a trailing x'20' would be correct of it's what the field's leading attribute, as is most often the case. Otherwise it probably should match that leading attribute byte.
