Change combobox background color in AS3
I needed to change the background color of the text region of a flash combobox – using AS3 at runtime.
Styles for some reason were not working. The solution was to directly address the textfield property and change its background color. Here’s an example:
cbo.textField.textField.background = true; cbo.textField.textField.backgroundColor = 0xDEDE29;
