The simplest way to do it is :

  1. Go to SharePoint Designer 2010

  2. Go to your list, open the list view you want to modify

  3. in ribbon, select Options [Tab] - Conditional Formatting - Format Row option.

It should be fairly straightforward.

The most common way to do that is by using conditional formatting with SharePoint Designer. but it has its disadvantages - it messes up grouped views and more other things. Besides SharePoint designer I can recommend on custom development or 3rd party product like we have here in Infowise – Color Field. You should give it a look -

My colleague has written up a post detailing the different ways to do this - How to do list highlighting in SharePoint

It includes

  • SharePoint Designer
  • Javasript & Content Editor Web Parts
  • Custom Columns via Visual Studio
  • and of course 3rd party products (disclaimer, one of which is from my company)

There are third party add-ons(sharepoint highlight rows) that allows you highlight SharePoint list rows based on field values.
