Setting Entry Control Background Color

Setting Entry Control Background Color

(OP)
I am trying, without any luck, to set the background color for entry controls, based on the content of the entry field. Does anyone have a suggestion?

RE: Setting Entry Control Background Color

Use PROP:FillColor or PROP:Background or PROP:Color,1

?Field{prop:color,1}  = color:lightblue
?Field{prop:fillcolor} = color:lightblue

Excerpt from the Clarion Help :

COLOR( color  [, selected fore ] [, selected back ] )

COLOR    Specifies display or print color.

color    Specifies the background color (PROP:Background or PROP:FillColor, equivalent to {PROP:Color,1}). Foreground color is specified in the FONT attribute.
selected fore    Specifies the default foreground color for the selected text on a control that can receive focus (PROP:SelectedColor, equivalent to {PROP:Color,2}). Not valid in a REPORT.
selected back    Specifies the default background color for the selected text on a control that can receive focus (PROP:SelectedFillColor, equivalent to {PROP:Color,3}). Not valid in a REPORT.

The COLOR attribute (PROP:COLOR) specifies the default background and selected foreground and background colors.
