Get the current cell's changed value

I have an editable cell and trying to change the background of the cell based on user entered value. I am having trouble figuring it out because when I use {{self}} it gives me the original value from the table not what the user has entered.

I think you can only change the cell background based on the table cell data loaded into it...not necessarily the data entered in by the user at the time they are entering it.....I think...

The edited values (pending updates) are stored in the table's .recordUpdates property, while self remains as the original cell value.

You can reference .recordUpdates in the background color, just keep in mind that .recordUpdates will be cleared when the user presses Cancel or Save Changes
