The tag color can’t be dynamic, but you can use an If-then-else column to make the avatar dynamic, there are a bunch of tutorials here in the forum.


The possibilities to adjust font color and size are limited in Glide.

A few ideas:

  • As Jesus suggests, Settings → Appearance. There you can adjust the project’s accent color and typography.
  • Hint text components: different moods are available.
  • Buttons: different moods are available
  • Conditional colors: I would add colorful emojis in the data (tables). For example “:green_circle: Available” and “:red_circle: Out of stock”. Conditional colors for the background of tag overlays on cards are not possible.
  • In cards and tiles, you can adjust the font size to 3 sizes, though in cards the header (text with accent color) will be ignored.
  • The rich text and text components allow you to change the font size and alignment.
  • In a Pages project, there are a few choices of background colors you can choose from for both containers and the navigation section (either left vertical or top horizontal).
  • Some make use of CSS which is not supported by Glide unless otherwise indicated (such as in Pages).

thank for your answer.
can you explaind more about “avatar dynamic”.
is it meaning when we use “if-then-else” if it is true, ○○ of words will be appeared ,
then it is false another words will be appeared.
is it right?

thanks your support!
in a pages project → is it meaning in setting or in layout
and may we setting color of the background in every layout???

I’m not sure what you mean by “dynamic avatar”. Maybe this is when a user creates their profile but they do not upload their picture. In this case, we can give them a default avatar.

One method: use the “generate image” column and set this as the image in the user profile.

Another method: see the topic where @Robert_Petitto explains how he generates dynamic avatars.

I possibly totally misunderstood your question, if so my apologies.

When you first create a project from your Glide dashboard, you are asked if the project is an mobile app (Glide Apps) or a web app (Glide Pages).

I have the feeling you are working on a mobile app, but should your project be a web app, you can change the color of the background of containers (containers only exist in Pages).

By “avatar” I think @hango1311 is referring to the Avatar field in the tile/cards component.


thank Robert for your comment.
i’m referring to tag overlays on cards

To dynamically change the text of the tag overlay based on a number in the stock column, as you suggested you can use the if-then-else computed column.

For example:

  • Basic column, number: Stock
  • If-then-else computed column: If “stock” = 0, then “Out of stock”, else “In stock”
  • Point the tag overlay to the if-then-else column.

You can add colored emojis to the text to make the tag more visual.
