Any luck equinox?

I found myself trying to do the same thing.  What I realized is that both the greyHiddenRecords and and redSoldRecords plugins where altering the same Core Plugin Hook called listRow_trStyle

What it seems like to me is that with the updated plugin, you can now add additonal conditions such as 

$GLOBALS['greyRecordFieldNamesToOptions']['date'] = [
                                            'value'      => date("Y-m-d H:i:s"), // date today
                                            'comparator' => '<', // compare if this is a date in the past
                                            'tableName'  => 'sample_table', // grey-out the record only on this table/section list page

but there is not a separate text formatting for those conditions.  Basically any record meeting any of the conditions will change the listRow_trStyle to the same thing.

Looking at the file   /cmsb/lib/menus/default/list_functions.php you will see this at line 139

 $trStyle = applyFilters('listRow_trStyle', '', $tableName, $record);

and then this just a few lines down

print "<tr class='$trClass' style='$trStyle'>\n";
displayListColumns($listFields, $record, $options);
print "</tr>\n";

So it would appear that there is a single listRow_trSyle hook that is Global and both of your plugins were modifying it.  I suppose whichever plugin is processed 2nd wins.

Hi Guys, 

I'd recommend just making a custom plugin for what you want to do.  This is one of those cases where the pre-made plugin doesn't really make it much simpler than the custom code.  Here's some custom plugin code for setting the text color:

addFilter('listRow_trStyle', 'v203_highlightAdminUsers', null, 3);

// admin record lists: update style of <tr> rows
function v203_highlightAdminUsers($trStyle, $tableName, $record) {

  // accounts: add style to <tr> rows if record has 'isAdmin' checked
  if ($tableName == 'accounts' && $record['isAdmin']) {
    $trStyle = "color: red;";

  return $trStyle;

You just want an if, elseif chain so that you can control which one goes first.

Hope that helps!

Hi Dave,

Thank you for providing that info and also for the explanation and insight so I could learn better.
