You can do ConditionalFormatting on your ComboBox, but this will only take place AFTER your selection is made. Not sure you can have set colors for ComboBoxes. But if you want to try it, in FormDesignView click on your ComboBox. Next, in the MenuBar click on Format, then ConditionalFormatting. Next for Condition1 place this:
[Field Value Is] [Equal To] "Current" and then just below where it says No Format Set, click the PaintBucket and choose your color.
For your next two fields repeat the process as Condition2, and Condition3.
Note: [Field Value Is] is a ComboBox that you select that from.
Note: [Equal To] is also a ComboBox that you select from.
Note: "Current" is just the open TextField you type your options in.
I hope this helps you out some but not sure it's really what you are wanting.
have a nice one,
Oh, one other thing which is what I just found in one of my older databases. I wanted the user to see a color associated with a choice. So what I did was to make an OptionBox (RadioButtons) and for each Option (Choice) I had a Label right beside it with a Color pre-set. Now, that is an option you can think about as well.
