Some days ago I had the requirement to show alternate row colors in a break.

In fact that I was missing a SCN-Entry about this - there we go:

(I am using BO 4.0)



1. I create a variable RunningSwitcher with following definition:


This gives me a number starting at 1 for each line of one project:

2. next I created a variable ProjectSwitcher with following definition:


This variable gives me the same number for each project starting by 1:

3. a variable which checks if the ProjectSwitcher is even or odd to get one number for each even row and another for each odd row:


4 & last step: I created a conditional formatting on the last variable which just set a gray background color if the row number is 0:

That's it!

As a result I got this:

Hope that helps,
