Lets say they all have field "priority".
I want to only records with priority equals to 1 be colored in RED (whole row or just field).
So when generating report they can be easily observed.
How to achieve this?
0) Add your table to the canvas
1) Select detail row in the table
2) Click "Add" in Highlights window (located in Property Editor)
3) Enter condition row["priority"] Equal to 1
4) Set background color to Red
5) Click OK
I think this is one of the tutorials on the BIRT website :/
