What event are you using to trigger the change?
This worked fine for me:

//text area with instance name of myTA placed on the stage
myTA.setStyle("color", "0xFF0000"); //can also use "red"

//button with instance name of myButton placed on the stage
myButton.onRelease = function(){
myTA.setStyle("color", "0x0000FF");//can also use black

i'm making the changes in a class since the TextArea is a part of a component.
the function is:

function ChangeStyle(prop:String,param:String){



in my fla file, i place an instance of the Component on stage, say, myComp.

on the click of button1, i have written,
myComp.ChangeStyle("color","red"); //Works
on the click of button2, i have written,
myComp.ChangeStyle("color","black"); //Does'nt Work

button1 and button2 are Button instances.
Can u gimme a solution? :)
Thanx for replying
