State Formatting Sort Order/Priority

An order has two states, Status=New, Hold=Hold
Status=New format is green
Hold=Hold format is blue

Unhold leaves Hold=Hold but changes Status=New
So has two defined formats.

That make more sense?

Was wanting to give priority to Hold state for format.

Anyway, sorted now.

What is the Group Name for Hold? What is Unhold?

Im still not following you. Perhaps show the rules your using might make more sense.

State==> State Name: Hold --> Name: Hold
State==> State Name: Status–> Name: New

The point was the ability to define the order/priority of state definitions for the formats.

I have solved another way but question is still valid

What is changing… what color… An entity? Entire Order line? Are you talking about Entities?

Or are you talking about Update Order Group action?

Orders format on screen


But that is with the fixed Format states

Can you show a screenshot example?

Ohhhh lol wow you have a lot of states… so why keep it as new if its on hold?

Your tutorial :stuck_out_tongue:
Unhold puts back to new (presumably to work with default kitchen printer rule)

My tutorial was simple setup not taking into account formatting or showing those states. If you want to incorporate formatting you should think that flow through. Do not use New as a format instead use something else. This is what you did but you could also simplify it. You could replace New with Hold but might need to think through entire flow.

I know that :slight_smile: wasn’t blaming you lol

Thats what I did,
Format State;
FNew
FSubmitted
FCanceled
FVoid
FGift
FHold

Ok makes sense now. You did right thing. You could probably simplify it but your right what you did will work just fine.

You were over thinking the format options. They are really VERY basic you can only show 1 color at a time which means only one of the states should have a format.

The problem was defining formats on states from separate groups.

While I have your attention, any chance you could help me with this;

On the subject of State Formatting and my aim to reduce/simplify the ticket screen I was hoping as well as defining colours ie red with strike-through for void it would be nice to replace the price with VOID (as the void/gift state visibility on ticket screen has been turned off) however you cannot not have {0}.
Let me show you;

Test addition next to {0}

Removing {0} and just VOID

Think this would be awesome if pricee could be masked like I was hoping - since price of void item is erelevent on display.

This is what I was looking to achive;

Although works well for gift, leaving price on with strike-through (just price) works well and looks good :smile:

…was that a like @Jesse :stuck_out_tongue:

but would be good to be able to just have VOID and hide the price completely for voids

This is close to doing it…

Close but no cigar :stuck_out_tongue:

It doesnt support Expression formatting I tried lol.

What do you mean by that sorry?
