Question customizing the "list component" (text color)

Is there a way to change the text color in the list component? Would it be done in action scripting or in the xlm?

Yes, there is a way to change the color in the list component.

First, you give your List Component an instance name, then add the following action script to a frame where your list component is located.

ListComponent-InstanceName.setStyle("color", 0x66CCFF);

ListComponent-InstanceName.setStyle("textRollOverColor", 0xFF0000);

I'm trying the same thing with no luck. I'm using Flash v10 and AS3.

I'm loading the list content from an xml file. When I try to add those lines in after changing the instance name to the one I'm using, nothing changes.

I tried putting it in with all the rest of my AS and on a separate layer and on the same layer/frame the list component is on.

Anybody know why it's not working?
