First - I cannot compliment Christophe enough for the fantastic work he's done on the color calendar. I absolutely love it and so does management.
I took the liberty of making some customizations.
First, I changed the Color calculated column to the following:
Column Type: Choice (menu to choose from)
Display Choices Using: Drop-Down menu
Choices: (list any color you want by name. For a list of good color names, search "IE Colors" via google. I selected the IBDGuy link, copied the list to excel and deleted any entry I didn't think would look good. I still ended up with over 20 colors)
Second I created a calculated column called 'Display' and used the following code:
<span style='width:100%;display:inline-block;text-align:center;border:1px solid "&Color&";position:absolute;color:"&Color&";'>"&Title&"
<span style='display:inline-block;width: 100%;background-color:"&Color&";text-align:center;border:1px solid;z-index:-1;filter:alpha(opacity=20);opacity:0.2;'>"&Title&"
And of course, I saved his TextToHTMLlite-v2.1.1.txt file to a document library and linked to it from a hidden CEWP.
Now my customers can select from MANY different color choices rather than trying to guess the color based on the status.
This post is not to say I have a better solution, but just another option based on customer's needs/wants.
Again - thank you Christophe! Your code and posts are priceless!Don't forget to check out Christophe's "SharePoint User Toolkit" (google it)
