Default backgroundColor on TextInput not working properly

I've recently upgraded my app into Flex 4.5.1.

I have an mx:TextInput whose background colour I have changed to backgroundColor="0xffffc3"

Back in Flex 3, the entire text input would change color. Now the only bit that changes colour is the background behind the actual text written within the TextInput.

Am I doing something wrong?

Has something changed?

I am using the Halo theme and not the Spark theme if it makes any difference.

I cannot submit an image because my post count is less than 50 so can't illustrate the problem.

have you maybe tried to set the background color using the setStyle method?

something like this maybe:

myTextInput.setStyle('backgroundColor', "#ffffc3")

yes I have. the problem was a class that wrapped the TextInput. I had to set backgroundAlpha to 0 and it worked.
