Hello Everyone,

Does anyone know if is possible to select a different format for a selected item on a list widget?

I use arcade to create the card- shape and a conditional format that is  based on the status of a species but I can't figure out how to change the card format when the item is selected on the list. The current arcade setting only let me set the {SelectionColor}  and it shows as a small bar on the left side of the list. It is not very clear to see the selected item and what I am trying to accomplish is to change the card outline, the background color and add a shadow when the item is selected (see attched pic). Thanks for any help and suggestions!Selected.png

Hi @JoseBarrios1 

I dont think it is possible to do that.

Alternatively, you might want to consider on changing the selectionTextColor to make it more prominent.

I'm looking to do something similar. The old version of Operations Dashboard on Enterprise 10.8.1 would have the whole background change when a List item was selected. Since upgrading I've gotten several uses who preferred the color change of the full background and not just a little blue bar. Any chance this could be done with Arcade?

I would also like this, since I couldn't find an idea for it I created one. Vote for this one:
