# Row custom color formulas

Color can be applied to the text and background of a row in a view based on a formula. The formula is specified as the value for a "Use value as color" column in the view. The formula must evaluate to a list of three or six numbers:

- A 3-number value specifies the RGB value for the text of the row. The background color is unaffected.
- A 6-number value specifies the RGB value for the background (first three numbers) and text (second three numbers) of the row.

The custom colors apply to the column containing the formula and all columns that follow. Typically, the column containing the formula is hidden.
