Set Field's Content Fill Color



I have a few text fields that I want to set the background, or fill color to a different color when the form opens.  I want these fields (not the captions) to stand out from the others, rather than making them required fields.

I tried this method with JavaScript in the field's initialize event, but the field only changes color when you enter the field.

Subform_Employee_Info.Table1.Row1.Name.ui.oneOfChild.border.fill.color.value = "0,200,0"; // green

I want the new fill color to show when the form opens.

How would I go about accomplishing this, and at the same time, making sure that the field color does not print?

my guess is that the error relates to incorrent SOM path referencing.

try this..

script to be placed in target field ('Name') on the [initilize] event

this.fillColor = "0,200,0"; // green
